Ctrl, Alt and Menu keys (was: RE: Thinking about a better UI)

Perhaps the Alt and Ctrl keys should simply be reversed on the Windows
platform.  I don't think their historical meanings are that important.  By
and large, people use Ctrl-XCV far more than they use the control
characters.  Perhaps there should also be a simple keyboard mapping
mechanism that can be made specific to the hardware (i.e. one image could
contain multiple keyboard mappings for multiple platforms).
