so I noticed that we should go the ubiquity way...
hit Ctrl once, Dash opens, type S, see Save, discover ShotWell,
but Save is already selected, because we already decided that Save
is the default match for S,
hit enter, saves
hit Ctrl once, Dash opens, type C, see Copy, discover Compiz
but Copy is already selected, because we already decided that Copy
is the default match for C,
hit enter, copies
hit Ctrl once, Dash opens, type F, see Find, discover Firefox,
but Find is already selected, because we already decided that Find
is the default match for F,
hit enter, finds
What do you say?

The super key already opens the dash. Hit super. Then type

Hold control and press s to save.

Hi Ubuntu team and community,
we have to make using the keyboard a pleasing experience.
I thought about creating a shortcut for Dash, for Ubuntu
Software Store, for System Settings, but I quickly run into
conflicts. If CTRL+S is save, what is System Settings? So we
have to go like the emacs way, but better.
We hit ctrl once, but we don't hold ctrl, because that toggles
on keyboard shortcut mode.
Calm down! When we hit s, we see save. When we hit c, we see
copy. When we hit f, we see find. It's all there, the old
Going back, we hit ctrl once, then we type Ubu, then see what
we're typing, then see Ubuntu One and Ubuntu Software Center,
then hit down, then Ubuntu Software Center is selected, then
hit enter, then Ubuntu opens Ubuntu Software Center for us.
That's very expressive, so that is very good, because we need
to express intent.
