unity: default shortcut to minimize all windows too complicated

Bug Description

The default shortcut to minimize all windows on the current workspace is "Control + Alt + D". I think it would be better to change this to "Super + M", which is:
1) Easier to type and remember
2) what Windows uses, so it would be familiar for most users.

I know it is past all the freezes for Precise already, but I was wondering if it would be possible to add "Super + M" as a second shortcut to trigger "minimize all". This way, there have to be no changes in the UI, and 'naive' users can still use "Super + M" to minimize windows, as they would expect.

Thanks!
