[Ardour-Dev] mac vs. linux keybindings

after comparing the mac and linux keybindings one by one, i found that
they are equivalent under the following modifier key abstraction (which
we have in the CSS of the manual already:
generic linux mac
mod1 ctrl cmd
mod2 alt ctrl
mod3 shift shift
mod4 win ?
this works for all bindings except those few who are bound to the "win"
key under linux - i don't know if that binding has a valid counterpart
on the mac keyboard.
if we can get rid of those "win" key bindings in the default setup, or
if there is a universally accepted counterpart on the mac keyboard, we
can do away with the duplicated keybinding docs and just generate them
on-the-fly from the same manual page, by applying the abstraction
mentioned before. in fact, that's already done on all other manual pages
depending on the user agent string of the browser. the only exception
are the bindings lists, where this feature is overridden by a rather
hacky check of the page title (if it contains "linux", pin key bindings
to linux, vice versa for "OS X").
enlightenment appreciated :)
