Alt/Shift/Control + F3,F4,F5 should already work like FT2 by default.

since ft2-osx is now a thing, i pretty quickly discovered that if i switch back and forth between renoise and ft2, the keyboard shortcut context switch hit on me is pretty huge.
if i am just doing exclusively one or the other, i can manage ok, but if i'm bouncing between 'em? nope.
so i set out to make renoise work like FT2 for the most part, keyboard shortcut-wise. i was thinking i'd publish the keymap.xml but since it's a _complete_ full dump of all the keys and not just the delta of what i changed, i think maybe this won't be so useful for everyone, so here's a summary of the change notes i made:
i didn't try to do every single thing possible or over think this but here's an example; it didn't take too terribly long.
