ion3 defaults configuration is a very basic one, so it might not look
that promising on the first glimpse. But since everything is
configurable, you can have your own shortcuts. IMO defining the right
short cuts is the hardest part, because chances are high that the WMs
shortcuts conflict with an application. I finally split Ctrl_R and
Meta_R from their original keys, binding them to Mod3 and Mod4 (both
where available on my machine).

I can send you my config if you like.
