[IPython-dev] available modifier keys

Hi All,

I know that since the notebook is supported on many platforms and on 
many browsers, the intersection of the many sets containing modifiers is 
somewhat limited, so I would like to ask, whether something like 
Alt+Enter would work on all systems. What I would like to suggest (I can 
also implement it, if I am given the go-ahead) is a shortcut for 
Shift+Enter + Control-m a. Many a time, I find myself going back to a 
piece of code in the middle of the notebook, and after entering a 
statement, I would like to get a new code cell at that particular place. 
Control+Enter takes me back to the cell, and Shift+Enter jumps to the 
next cell. I think, such an addition would be useful, but I don't know 
what the allowed modifiers are.

Any comments or suggestions?
