Bug Description

While holding the Super key down, successive hotkeys should be usable without having to lift the key. For example Super-2-3 should launch apps corresponding to icons 2 and 3.

Super-4-5 should switch to the window for launcher icon 4 then 5. In
general, keeping Super down and hitting successive keys should let you
correct course to the later app. Super-1-2-3-4-5 should launch all 5
apps, for example.


summary: - super-shortcuts are slow to use
+ super-shortcuts should be "serializable"
