shrink in the windows to the desktop and get at the Icons I wish to use.

For me a compoisite way mouse + keyboard is unnacceptable because of the
time it takes.

Moreover the logo key is *bnot* available on my keyboard : I need it as
a compose key.

Sending this back to the list because this wasn't meant to be a private exchange

I think you misunderstand - you don't need mouse AND keyboard, its mouse OR keyboard

Although I haven't had time to try it yet, it looks to me relatively easy for people to develop plugins to change gnome-shells behaviour. With javascript and html as the underlying technologies, it sounds as though the situation is set up to allow people to develop extensions to change behaviours etc - indeed there already are a few simple ones around (although sadly not yet packaged for debian)
