I suppose based on this question that there is a way to use Option Key and 
Control-Key modifiers in menus. I haven't figured those out yet. The command Key 
is easy enough but the others would be nice as well.

I really appreciate all the contributors to this group. I would be much worse 
of a rev scripter without this extremely critical resource. I'm relatively 
new with rev. Many times I've picked up a tidbit from someone else's Q&A.
