Allow system wide shortcut customization

      Description

      General:

      Qt defines a couple of Shortcuts. Some of them are externally consistent (like ctrl+C,...), some are not externally consistent (like Alt+Mousewheel for horizontal scrolling)

       

      Suggestion:

      Enable the possibility to customize externally inconsistent shortcuts systemwide (which is probably almost everything except for Ctrl+C/X/V).

       

      Benefit:

      On each OS a Qt app is used, it feels more unified and integrated into the system.

      ( I think it's a good idea to allow shortcuts to be configured by OSs and not by toolkits ).

       

      Specific:

      Qt defines Alt+Mousewheel for horizontal scrolling. However, this collides on Ubuntu systems, because

      1) they use Shift+Mousewheel for horizontal scrolling.

      2) they define Alt+Mousewheel for desktop zoom and window dragging/resizing.
