Description (last modified by bdezonia)

Some tools (PickerTool, AbstractLineTool) need to know when the ALT key is down. This is all done in a UI centric way (which may be okay here).

But in general IJ1 has ways to set the status of the keyboard modifiers (alt up/down, shift up/down). This allows plugins to run headless and still test key status. We probably want to provide this as well.
