Porting shouldn't be hard, getting it accepted into Qt is a different task altogether 8-)

Ctrl (or Command, on Mac). Yes, those are most likely added automatically by Qt. There are ways to assign short-cuts to the other actions too, but AFAIK that has already been done because they do appear in the shortcuts editor. Maybe the same thing happens here that I also ran in to when I tried to make the shortcuts for Rename, Delete etc. configurable (IIRC they too never appeared in the context menu and were generally unreliable).

Could this have something to do with the fact that those contextmenu actions are created and added on the fly, just before the contextmenu appears?
