That's traditional in software development. ;)

What keyboard layout are you using? I am using the German layout and I
can reach the shortcut just fine. I am used to it since I use telnet a
lot (telnet, traceroute and ping are the three most important network
debugging tools, at least according to a big network equipment company).

I have to admit that most key combinations make a lot more sense when
using an US keyboard layout. However I use both the US and DE layouts
very often and don't think alternative shortcuts are worth the trouble
considering the feature requests for Xen 3.0.
