Thanks for the reply,

Even i was thinking something like this. If the key is already handled
by some one else then dont use my handler. If no one has handled this
key then only use my handler. But the question is, how can i check if
the event has been handled already ? Is there any webkit/gtk api
something like IS_EVENT_HANDLED(event) ?
