Right, but for a tutorial - and therefore for beginners - its easiest to
say press <cmd>-whatever, where <cmd> is any of ctr/alt/cmd, depending
on your platform.
And as Squeak is used on very different platforms, it makes sens to
always have the same keys working, e.g. if you dual boot.
And then, it will be a preference, so you can do whatever you like in
your own image.

Except that noone who hasn't raised his voice so far _would_ actually
vote. Sad but true. (And I'm including myself here).
Well, I'd say go with dupall (having shortcuts which are displayed as
uppercase being usable with the uppercase key, makes lots of sense, IMO).
