Ah. I used John Pierce's setup script, and it installed KeyBinder on
my 3.9images.

Ah.  I  was confusing the new Services code with KeyBinder.

Either way, it seems to work quite well, except for this bug. If there is
indeed no way of detecting a keyup event for any of the modifier keys, then
I think it's a pretty major deficiency of Squeak's keyboard event handling
