Bug Description

I know that this issue has been reported in bugs #513312 and #836453, but my use case is a bit different as the key combination that I want to emulate cannot be achieved through type().

I am using Sikuli X 1.0rc3, on Windows 7 64bit. One of the Windows key combinations that we are trying to emulate are the:
  "WIN key" + "Shift key" + "Left arrow key / Right arrow key" combinations
This achieves the effect of flicking a window from one monitor to the next in multi-monitor configurations.

The problem with this combination is that it cannot be achieved with type(), hence we hoped to use keyDown() and keyUp().

Are there any plans, or any suggestions of work arounds, to achieve this sort of key combination?

Regards,
Jason
