I was wondering if it would be possible to leave out the 'alt' for 
often-used operations. As an example: at present, to zoom in, I need 
to press 'alt-m' and then 'z'., repeatedly.

In pcb and gschem I can do this by just hammering 'z' a few times to 
zoom up to the right level.

Perhaps it makes sense to make these shortcut key bindings only for 
items that are in the context menu.
