Well, the two big platforms where the GIMP will be used in the
future are GNOME and KDE. Both of those follow the HIG guideline
of Ctrl-Shift-Z. On windows, the main alternative app (photoshop) uses the same shortcut.
While I totally agree to your agruments about following existing standards and/or practise, in Gimp we have the additional problem that ctrl-shift-z is not very ergonomical. Unlike word processors, undo-redo (repeatedly) is quite a normal and very common operation with gimp to compare operations or filters.
Also, that crappy program will erase the undo history after File Save actions. That turns very difficult to save a version of an image with a filter applied, and them go back to working on the image without that filter.
Anyway, I will have no say on what Key I'd prefer for the GIMP Undo at this time. Both CTRL + R and Shift + Ctrl + Z have good arguments. Just please, do keep Ctrl + Alt + Z out of question, it is hard to reach and ALT do indeed have some issues in the KDE enviromment. And, anyway, one of the first things I teach to one who is learning the GIMP is the dinamic shortcut allocation.
