Keybindings Health Check

Registered by Jason Warner on 2012-04-25

Rationale:
We had tried to get some shortcut changes during the Precise cycle. Some successfully, some were not (like changing the "change worspace " keybindings).

We checked again the shortcuts at UDS time, and can do some small tweaking exposing eventually new shortcuts, but at least, moving to gsettings for the configuration backend.
