In dmenu we don't need to worry about other apps, because dmenu grabs
the keyboard and during the time until ungrabbing it we can override
any key combination we like. That's why I propose having a Key
interface in dmenu like in dwm that can be used to execute a command
to insert at current text position and good is. I prefer ^p to
Shift-Insert by default.
