I agree that Revolution should support additional modifier keys in  
menus. Right now I support additional combinations (shift + command,  
etc.) using a front script that triggers menus but there is no way to  
visually tell users so we end up getting emails to support asking for  
shortcut keys that already exist. This reflects poorly on applications  
made with Rev.

Perhaps those interested could add their votes to an enhancement  
request that Jeanne filed back in 2005 which makes the request along  
with syntax suggestions:


Bill Marriott also filed an enhancement request last year but the  
report that Jeanne filed has some great examples of how this support  
might be implemented.
