modifier-only shortcuts

alt+space is widely used in Asia as the trigger key for input method,
so I do not think it should be the default either

I for one vote for the possibility of modifier-only shortcuts support
in KDE(4). Asian users are familiar of switching input methods by
pressing alt+shift/shift+alt. It is fine to avoid modifier-only
shortcuts by default, but it should definitely support it if the users
want to have it
