Lock screen should be consistent with show/hide desktop shortcut

Bug Description

In Maverick the way to show the desktop was changed from ctrl+alt+D to <super>+D
but the way you lock the screen has not followed this new convention. it is still ctrl+alt+l and to keep things consistent it would seem to be better to use <super>+L

This doesn't count as a papercut as the average user will not be user keyboard shortcuts to navigate around the OS. If they wish to access the desktop quickly, they will use the purple desktop icon (clearly contracted against the dark grey of the panel) rather then a key combination.

This should be a bug rather than a papercut.

See also bug #681348 which notes the need to ensure that the minimise-all-windows key combo still works on Unity in Ubuntu 11.04.

Can I please be advised to which project I can assign this bug to?
