Turning off modifiers would be hard to implement while the shortcuts are 
configurable... Rather something like the mentioned profiles - it sounds best 
for me.

I know it's non-conventional for many people, but it's also inconvenient for 
many others. Personally I can't imagine myself using two fingers for adding a 
layer or doing other common tasks;) The same with other 'one-finger' 
applications, as kmail, where I'm writing from. I understand Mac users are 
irritated having to adjust the shortcuts to run Grass console, but now many 
(maybe more) other users, as me, will have do the same in order to get an 
convenient environment :)

I believe we should either implement shortcuts profiles or at least ask users 
for a voting (both are infeasible before the release). The main problem is 
that if we drop the one-finger shortcuts and update the documentation now, 
reverting this change in the future will look strange ;) So for me doing it 
just before the release is not a good idea...

Anyone else is interested? :)
