What is the method you are using?

What do you mean by "permutations"? If you mean what I think, then I'm
not sure I agree with >3 not being worth it. I've used keyboard
bindings with more than 2 modifiers before, and we should certainly
support this properly.

If you'd like guidance during your work, rather than comments once
you're done, I'll be highly available for the next several hours.
