Well, this is what the "profile" code was for. We still have
several .commands and .shortcuts pairs in the distribution, but people
have to load them via the Command Center as the startup dialog mechanism
was dropped, IIRC because we found that maintaining multiple copies was
too difficult. (If there are files that are not being used by the
developers then they become out of date and no-one reports it).

In this case there is no requirement to have different commands
available, just shortcuts. That can be achieved via a script - see
examples in the Input->PC Keyboard menu. So what could be done is to
query the architecture at run time and set up appropriate key bindings.

If this were done in the denemo.scm file it would be run at every new
score, rather than at startup, which is too often really.

I'm not sure if there are scheme procedures available to determine the
OS, we could create defines from Denemo's start up routines (hmm, we may
have something already to tell scheme if we are on windows, these
defines used to be created in view.c but may have moved)...

I'm still *very* short of time for answering questions, so I'll send
this very incomplete reply so as not to hold you up.
