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

For some reason, I think Compiz's "unredirect fullscreen" setting lets
Compiz get keyboard combos even while using a fullscreen app.  I don't have
it installed here, so I can't try, but I think I could open an xterm while
running Battle for Wesnoth.
