Frankly I didn't expect such oposition agains idea of switchable
shortcut “profiles”. Since shortcuts are modifiable anyway then why
shoudn't they be changable en masse with profiles? – were my thoughts. I
guess my mistake was to bring Ps case in ;).

Possibly… but dropping Ps out of the thing, I still like the idea of
“accelerator themes”. Yet I totaly respect people's opinion on that
