Bug Description

Shortcut overlay invoked with holding Super key down is great. However, it does not show all keybindings that are in use. for some, it might show too much keybindings. It would be nice if it were possible to set which shortcuts are shown in the overlay.

It would be great if the shortcut overlay could show shortcuts for common actions by learning from user behavior. This way, it would create a bridge for "regular users" to become "power users" in a very intuitive way.

For example, if Unity/Zeitgeist decided that a user took a lot of screenshots, it could add some screenshot shortcuts (Shift+Print, Ctrl+Print, Alt+Print, etc.) to a "Common Actions" section to the shortcut overlay, and notify the user it had done so with NotifyOSD.

Another example would be if the user frequently navigates to a specific tab in the Dash, the overlay could add that to a "Common Actions" section in the overlay.
