If you're talking about the key that is marked as the commandKey on a Mac
keyboard, this is actually the "alt" or "option" key in Windows, and returns
that the optionKey is down.

Well, it depends on what you want to do. Personally, I only remove the
traversalOn for buttons that need to act on the text of a selectedField (for
example if I had a button for "bold" that would embolden the selected text).
