"Make sense" keymap to launch gnome-system-monitor?

It is only a keybinding, so as long as people can change it, then the
default doesn't matter all that much. The only problem with the concept at
the moment is that people will expect it to work during full-screen apps
like Ctrl-Alt-Delete does in windows. It doesn't at the moment because SDL
and openGL apps grab the entire keyboard. This is kind of X.orgs fault for
not providing a way to force-hold certain key-combos regardless of who has
the keyboard (this would also solve a lot of problems with media keys not
working in full-screen apps).

A lot of people will use this to kill crashed apps, but it won't work in
fullscreen. Is there any way to resolve this problem short of asking the
X.org devs to rewrite their keyboard handling?
