[webkit-dev] Keyevents for modifier keys

while porting the JavaScript Framework qooxdoo (http://qooxdoo.org) to 
WebKit, we've found some strange behaviour in the WebKit keyboard handler:

None of the modifier keys (Shift, Alt, Meta, Control) do fire key 
events, while all other browsers do fire them.

This makes things like changing the action of drag and drop from move to 
copy using the ALT key (like in the finder) hard to implement.
