Wait, there is also a way to convert any key pressed to it's textual (UTF8 if I remember correctly) value (as a string).
From my experience this has always worked perfectly. It always gives keymap dependent values on both Windows and Linux. However there are few pitfalls there too.

First you're never sure what string you will get if you press a non latin or accentuated character key.

Second, if you press a modifier key you won't get the string you expect (ie pressing the Z key gives you "z" string, but pressing Ctrl-Z gives you another string that isn't necessarily the same depending on your OS and keymap).

Ok so it's not very useful for combinations of keys...
