It appears that the menu keystroke editor forces one to specify accelerators completely.  This isn't good, insofar as
one wants to generally have all of the same accelerator bindings, except swapping in Meta for Ctrl (or vice versa),
depending on whether the app is running on OS X or Windows.

The keystroke editor sould have an option to 'inject' Meta or Ctrl for a particular accelerator based on the current
runtime platform (of course allowing explicit injection of those modifiers if one so desires).
