Manage shortcut keys

Currently shortcut keys (J, P, Q...) are assigned in any of the Controller classes and can happily conflict. I've twice now assigned a shortcut key in one class, only to discover later that it conflicted with another one.

So at the least we need a central list (perhaps on the wiki) of which shortcuts are being used for what.

Whoops, thanks. I've done so. There are very few single letter shortcuts left: E, G, I, N, O, U. (Hmm, just enough to write an offensive French word.) Is it about time we had discussion about how best to use these keys? I was thinking perhaps all tools could be one letter, which highlights the toolbox, then another letter to select the tool. Or we could have a convention that they are all Ctrl+... Or something.
