Accelerators: with and without ctrl key

I would like to define accelerators that do not use the control key.
The semantics for accelerators seem to be as follows:

If the accelerator specifies control (e.g. "ctrl C") control is required.

Otherwise, (e.g. "C"), control is optional.

This means that if I have both ("C" = calibrate, and "Ctrl C" = copy),
the "C" gets in the way of "Ctrl C" (thereby preventing use of the clipboard).

Is there a workaround (aside from just handling keystrokes directly)?
Thanks,
Ken

Never mind. I am wrong.

Cheers
