Yes, the keyboard shortcuts.

I forgot about them because I am used to the Squeak way. However
people who have never used Squeak before probably think it is either
broken or very weird to change such a basic thing.

Maybe the solution is similar to the case of the windows colors. A
menu choice: 'Use Squeak keyboard shortcuts' and another one 'Use
platform keyboard shortcuts'.

Contrariwise to the windows color issue it might be more difficult to
implement, I do not know....
