Cool idea. Two questions:
- Is there a consistency problem for users switching between platforms? Maybe it's best to determine the 2 most used selection modifier functions, and then make the keys the same on both platforms..
- What does swapping the selection exactly mean?

Milena always has another idea ;) and proposes choosing between two modes:
Mode 1 (Win):
- alt for switching intersects/contains
- ctrl for adding features
- shift for substracting features

Mode 2 (Gnome/KDE):
- shift for switching intersects/contains
- ctrl for swapping the selection
