That's alright but you must keep in mind you are not on a desktop
computer and porting an application to Fremantle also passes through
providing alternatives to non-existing keys. I really don't think this
is an issue and I don't mind to press on two buttons to get a keys
dialog instead of using obscure key bindings that aren't even print on
the hardware keyboard.
