All KHotKeys2 can do is grouping together triggers+actions+conditions, where
triggers are keyboard shortcut, mouse gesture, and window "state" change (
dis/appearing, de/activating); actions are launching a command (just like in
minicli) or menuentry, doing DCOP call, activating a specific window or
simulating keyboard input; conditions are currently only whether a window
exists or is active. I think the example khotkeysrc demonstrates all of it.
Adding new ones to any of these three groups should be hopefully that
That's all KHotKeys2 can do (and that shows why the name doesn't fit at all

menuentry by a keyboard shortcut. Feel free to do the maths to figure out the

Yes, hopefully. Just like all the other keys. The only thing that makes the
new keys different from normal ones is that people don't know how to setup
properly the keyboard (e.g. by setting the keyboard modal in the Keyboard
layout KControl module), and so they don't work for them.

That's probably rather for Ellis. Or perhaps only adding it specifically in
kxkb would do too (shouldn't be that hard in this case actually).
