I work on a wide variety of platforms and keyboards and I find the windows
key prevalent enough to have it as my MODKEY. I even have the menu key
wired to dmenu in xbindkeys for conveniance.
However I do have dmenu and a few other commands I find indesposable setup
to use Shift|Mod1 when I am on older thinkpads or keyboards without Super. I
am usually not on the platform long enough to warrant a full conversion.
Additionally, the programs you mention tend to have shortcuts in combination
with Control, and I use those rather than digging through menus.

The only real grump I have when it comes to dwm is lack of state
manipulation or information display, like awesome or musca. Which would
allow me to use different xbindkey configs dependant on the peripheral's

I am a pianist, so might not work well for others.
