I more than once said whenever someone implements an api compatible alternative i have no objection 
of using that one if we (as in kde) decide to do so.

But the global shortcuts code works. Like every other code it has pros and cons but it does it job. 
That's why I won't change it. But i won't play the maintainer and stop anyone to step in and change 
it. I advise the person willing to do that to think twice about it. You need asbest when working on 
that stuff.

I was working on a solution to do it the last time we talked about it. And told you so. While doing 
that a certain commit entered the repo and i lost the interest in implementing it.

[... stuff i will answer to later ... ]

There once was global shortcut contexts. It's even implemented but was never used. You remember 
'Design by Blog?'.

And that email is enough. I will come back to that tomorrow. It's pretty late (or more correct 
early) here so i have to sleep.

Done that.
