	To be easy to use, my opinion is that you should allow use to
define not only keyboard shorcuts to move/minimize/etc windows but also
mouse shorcuts combined with keyboards, i.e. Ctrl+Button1, Alt+Button2,

	Actually it exists, but it is hard-coded and users has to use
the shorcut that developer decides.
