 If you want to be pedantically accurate, then the name should be something 
like 'hot keys, gestures and windows' if you find sufficient listing only 
triggers, otherwise the name should be even 2 times longer. KHotKeys is not 
only about hot keys, and if I understand the difference between a hotkey and 
a shortcut, it has never been. It's about assigning actions to triggers.
