    Hmm, this works for delete and backspace, but not for keys which don't have a
    string specification, like Control_L. Keys like XK_Up and XK_x have string
    specifications, and they also work when supplied with
    fl_set_object_shortcutkey. Something strange is definitely going on here.

    I can just push control-V control-H to get a literal backspace character in my
    program text. This works in many, but probably not all, editors.
