Current status is:

keyhook dos not work properly in multiwindow mode and does only work for alt-tab.
I'm not sure why the windows keys are disabled but I think it is because of a
problem with proper integeration into the modifier mask.

I hope the first problem is not too hard. But the windows keys may require a lot 
of work.
