Comment (by hamish):

 Nice thanks.

 feedback and now more wishes:

  - could ctrl-q work from when focus is on e.g. the map display too?

  - alt-r,v: a nice thing!

  - (but/yet), how about Alt-F for _File menu, Alt-C for _Config menu etc?
 (difficult due to i18n?) alt-r,v would then have to become ctrl-r,v.

  - this was proposed earlier on the list: in GRASS 5's v.digit there used
 to be keyboard shortcuts for most digitizing tasks. This is probably the
 most important area to have optional keyboard bindings and the most
 productive for a power user -- where there is serious amounts mouse-work
 involved in some repetitive task.

  - maybe a keyboard binding for the eyeball display button in the map
 display window. (since forever this has been ctrl-r in web browsers for
 reload, ctrl-shift-r for full no-cache reload)

  - Plain +,- for zoom in/out one step in the map display window? Plain "p"
 to switch mouse cursor into pan mode?

  - ctrl-c: This has many common meanings already, I would not use it for
 "close workspace". Ctrl-w is often used for that (close tab etc) so I'd
 suggest to use that. Then ctrl-c is free to Copy selection in the Output
