[Bf-committers] Global Undo hotkeys

As inventor of this 'own workflow' here's my take on it:

- UKEY was for User defaults, User menu, UV menu, and reload original  
data in editmode (the old fake undo). I might even have forgotten one.  
Do you notice the coincidence of words starting with a U? So that's  
nice & easy to remember, not bad hotkeys at all.

Since the global undo is really new in Blender, it serves our 'own  
workflow' to choose a new key for it, and if possible choose a key  
that's commonly known from other applications.
This also  has to be an exceptional hotkey, since it has to be handled  
on top level, independent of window type.

If you propose to change all other (current UKEY) mappings, what's the  
benefit? Just confuses current users, confuses our docs, and won't help  
new users to learn Blender.

I think the current choice is well balanced, and serves all  
considerations best.
