+1 & try and make things consistent with VNC key mapping, Mac X server key mapping and Parallels coherence key mapping (etc?) so that things continue to work when running Linux and Windows images via X & parallels. We should be prepared to change the VM. And if it is there, it would be great to lift the mapping out of the VM.
