Offhand, I think this represents the Windows-symbol key on a Microsoft-friendly keyboard, and the Apple-symbol key on a Mac keyboard. Linux users have probably painted a tiny penguin on top of theirs. You should probably not assume that all users will have it.

Are you sure? The docs for KeyEvent make it sound as though meta and alt are two different things. But maybe they are synonymous, at least on some systems (Unix maybe?).
