I think it should be possible to achieve using a different user
configuration when clicking the blender shortcut in the video menu.

I think its a good idea, but the problem with keyboard shortcut
correction, is that it renders most of the available tutorial useless.
Especially if the implementation of the shortcut mod is _not_ pro-active.

Actually, the quantity of available on-line documentation in various
formats is another very good argument for giving blender a better
position in the video work-flow.
