pressing ctrl+` on mac produces the following keyboard events:
[keyDown '<Ctrl-2>']
[keystroke '<Ctrl-`>']
[keyUp '2']

on windows we get:
[keyDown '<Cmd->']
[keyDown '<Ctrl-À>']
[keyUp '<Ctrl-À>']
[keyUp '']

So docking bar activation is not working under windows.
What do you think about binding the docking bar menus to ctrl-<n> by
position like:
ctrl-1 squeak menu
ctrl-2 Project menu

And what do you think in general about using ctrl- keystrokes for
image wide shortcuts?
Like ctrl-w always closing the topmost window, not just when the World
has the keyboard focus.
