Need advise on keyboard shortcuts migration
jeromeg at xfce.org

As you may have noticed, I have been working on improving the keyboard
My current branches (jeromeg/keyboard-shortcuts) of libxfce4ui and
xfce4-settings already fix some long-standing bugs and I'm currently
trying to finish fixing bug #8200. The code there already handles
<Control> as well as <Primary> so grabbing / detecting those shortcuts
is not a problem, but handling shortcut conflicts sure is one.
The current shortcut conflict handling is based on comparing Xfconf
properties except that now, <Control> and <Primary> are the same thing
so we can't rely on that. <Control> won't be used in new installations
but I still need a way to handle "upgrades".
I don't want to add checks all hover the place to handle this and think
best way to move forward is to replace those shortcuts with their
<Primary> equivalent. I for one did a brutal "sed -i
How would you do that? A migration script using something like
xmlstarlet to edit only the name field of the shortcuts in the XML file
could be a solution.
Help is appreciated!
