Keyboard shortcut for RMB menu

Hi all,

currently, when using the default keyboard scheme, there is only one way
to open the RMB menu for an object via the keyboard, namely the menu

As it can't be assumed that all users possess this special key, there
should be a second way to access the RMB menu via the keyboard. The
standard is SHIFT-F10 (used e.g. by Windows, Gnome). I therefore suggest
to add this shortcut to the existing ones (do not simply replace it as
it might cause even more confusion!).

When using the windows keyboard scheme, the default shortcut is F10 (see
KControl - Keyboard Shortcuts - Shortcut Schemes - Application Shortcuts
- Navigation). Note that this does not meet the windows standard (which
is SHIFT-F10).
