It was unusable on my system when I tried it - but perhaps you found a 
better way to do it.  Could you send me your code?

The first and last are bugs in the current version.  But now I'll wait 
what everybody says before fixing it :-)

Shift+Right is of course meant for people with two-button mice - such as 
  most laptops.

There's little I can do about Window managers eating your events.  On 
Gnome Hyper-Left moves the window...

Perhaps I should just make it fully configurable.  Everybody can have 
their own mouse shortcuts :-)
