            Bug ID: 10743
           Summary: Unify keyboard shortcuts treatment via priority flag
    Classification: Xfce
           Product: Xfce4-session
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: General

There are two screens i am aware of i can set hotkeys - `App Menu > Settings >
Keyboard > application shortcuts tab`  and `App Menu > Settings > Window
Manager > Keyboard tab`. This led me to surprises as Ctrl+Alt+D showed me the
desktop instead of Dropbox.

Expected: common namespace for shortcuts - conflicts are resolved with a
priority system (exposed in the UI). As of now the Window Manager shortcuts
(show desktop) have highest priority but that is not necessary.

The window manager should be the central point of control - the App Menu >
Settings > Keyboard > application shortcuts tab should managed by the window
manager and applications (including the xfce session) should register their
shortcuts there. If they do not their shortcuts should by default have the
lowest priority. The system should be extendible with scripts
