Using the Windows key for Accessibility support

I'd like to suggest that we pre-configure the Windows key (and the Apple
key on PPC?) to launch the applications menu.
At the moment it can be activated with Alt-F1, but this key combination
is not possible for some users. You can activate sticky keys or mouse
keys which would generally cover this need, but those are not activated
on a fresh install and cannot be accessed without using the menu :(
An alternative solution would be to have the applications menu pop down
after 10 seconds on a default install in cases where the menu and launch
bar has not been used before that time. This would also improve
discoverability of the Applications menu.
