Review request for KDE Software on Mac OS X and Konsole.

Repository: konsole


OS X uses the Command (?, Apple) key as a modifier/opcode for keyboard accelerators aka shortcuts. This is the likely reason why Qt has swapped Qt::CTRL and Qt::META by default on that platform, but Konsole deactivates that feature. As a result, shortcuts are identical to what they are on other platforms, but not in line with what's standard on OS X.

I introduced a proxy for the standard accelerator opcode, to minimise the amount of conditional code blocks required to adapt Konsole to OS X. There is an added benefit of not using the Control key for shortcuts: `Copy` can be the usual `Command-C` instead of `Ctrl-Shift-C` on other platforms; idem for the `Paste` shortcut. I've adapted the shortcuts of a few other actions to the key combinations OS X uses for those actions.
