  We surely all agree about the feature in theory. It's the current implementation which sucks (too much) and which thus I propose to withdraw.

  From the short looks I had, this might need some more work (at least for me who is not that much into KXmlGui, where I suspect the real work is needed to reach flexibility with the app-global shortcuts registered for actions & Co). So far do not even have a rough idea how this could be approached
  In short: No idea ;)

  Chance is you also heard it often from me this year in multiple channels, every time when I was frustrated about having no instant idea how to fix it :P 
  (e.g. also for the wanted-to-have shortcuts in the documentation toolview of KDevelop)
