What i "dont like" here is that you're adding new dependencies for little
benefit, which could be already implemented within xfce, that already has
code to handle kbd shortcuts. I wouldnt mind for another random app, but
those days the mixer is generally part of xfce base installation (even if
not in core), so i'd be reluctant to add such a dep without considering
