Cherry's "STRAIT" keyboard doesn't emit scan codes for some key combinations
because, quote support, it's "not necessary for windows certification".
So you have to find out the hard way the hardware emits NOTHING for,
e.g., win+alt+space and win+shift+space (if you're an awesome-wm user,
you'll twitch roundabout now).

So I'm not surprised at all. "clever" manufacturers and designers,
how I hate them. There's only boycot to educate those.
