[maemo-developers] Full Screen Hotkey?

Ctrl-f is very commonly used as Find.   Users are used to that.  But what
about something like Ctrl-Volume (up/down) key?   Or Ctrl-Camera Key.   That
way you aren't actually "taking" overriding a existing "used" key.  And it
could be used by pretty much any program that needed it w/o it being used
for some other hotkey.

Correct.  I would suggest supporting additional shortcut like Ctrl-f as
proposed in another mail.

PS. User can switch to other apps by using the Ctrl-backspace shortcut for
the task switcher (or by launching Camera app with the camera button or
closing the application from the power menu "End task" button).
