Everything currently assumes that you have 1 hotkey per action. That
part wasn't the one that needed most change though. The impacting change
in my patch is making the configuration options accept a list of hotkeys
instead of a single hotkey.

Flipping it in the prefs doesn't sound doable. You'd need to have 1 pref
entry per possible key combo.

I'm going to try the other approach I mentioned tonight and see if it
looks better (but I'm afraid that it'll imply lots of constant reparsing
of the hotkey config values in the different interface's preference
