Alternative ways to display the context menu

There are security settings on browsers to block scripts from disabling the default context menu. In those cases, users will have no way to display our custom menu, as the only option we have for now is the right-click (as expected, btw).
We should provide alternative ways to display the menu. Some proposals are:
- [Left Click] + [Keyboard Accelerator] : we could use CTRL on Windows and META on Mac. The problem is that IE uses CTRL+Click to select the paragraph. I'm not sure we have people using that our there, but we would be removing that feature from the browser. ALT instead is used to activate the application menu on Windows, so we may have conflict.
- CTRL + [Space] : we can also make it configurable in the fckconfig.js file. It means that a "ContextMenu" command should also be created.
