I'm not sure if the "Windows" key is reported as GDK_META_MASK or GDK_SUPER_MASK on Linux. (I've mapped my "Windows" key to be a compose key.)

On Mac you can have both Cmd and Alt. I thought Textadept had some Cmd+Alt bindings somewhere, but I was wrong.

Robert, instead of supplying `keys.CMD = keys.ALT` and asking whether or not it is possible, what is the idea you're trying to express? Sorry it's still not clear to me.
