There is no truly portable way.  Plus, you shouldn't assume that all 
platforms would even have that capability.  Plus, you shouldn't assume 
that all users can press and hold multiple keys.  Disabled people have 
software that can help them hold Shift+R but not N+Q+R.

Try to use keystroke controls like most windowed applications, not 
key-hold controls like Quake or Doom.  Just my advice.
