That would be possible, but is a mayor change because Qt doesn't support 
alternative keysequences for a QAction. This means, that every QAction has to 
be duplicated for the alternative keysequence. Therefore it will not be done 
for the 3.5 release. However, it might show up in the 3.6 development one
