Independent of any opinion of how are they key bindings in other desktops,
I think that in GNOME can and must have a more intelligent. It has to copy
some things from other desktop (because many user are familiar with some
bindings), but there must be an improvement in areas were the others are

Please, don't do a plain copy from some desktop without improvement or
without rethinking a title.
