I think the first question to be addressed is:  how configurable does this 
need to be?  We haven't really had 'hot key' functionality in RD to date (if 
you don't count the "space bar starts next event" option for RDAirPlay), so 
perhaps it may be possible to come up with a single key binding that could 
make everyone happy.  While the "let everything do anything" approach is 
laudable, it's *not* simple to implement and (as Dan pointed out) can have 
dire implications for system stability if not very carefully thought out.
