One more thing to consider: the Mac does not notify the app when the
control, command, option, or shift key goes down alone. They are
combined into a single keypress when an alpha-numeric character is
typed. You can't catch them alone.
So the docs don't really lie, but they do assume you are typing Control
along with another character.
