I meant that FLTK itself in it's header file should change the name of the symbol from META to SUPER, in order to match a vast amount of other Linux documentation, including Weston apparently. Also FLTK should report the shift key is pressed down when you push it and the window has keyboard focus, even if Weston eats some of the key combinations, and currently the symbols and the keyboard demo say "META".

FLTK should probably rename the key "Super" as well to be consistent. When it was made I expected X to call that key "Meta".
For some reason, the Weston documentation uses "Super" to name the default modifier key it uses,
e.g., man weston.ini contains :

       binding-modifier=ctrl
              sets the modifier key used for common bindings (string), such as
              moving surfaces, resizing, rotating, switching, closing and set‐
              ting the transparency for windows, controlling the backlight and
              zooming  the  desktop. See weston-bindings(7).  Possible values:
              none, ctrl, alt, super (default)

That's also how W.B. called it in his message dated June 12th above, which has also been my first read
ever of such a key name.

Fortunately, that business is strictly private to the Weston compositor. FLTK doesn't have to process such a key stroke,
which is defined by Weston and can be changed via file $HOME/.config/weston.ini. The other Wayland compositor
I know, Mutter, doesn't use a key stroke to gain access to minimized windows.

In short, the Wayland FLTK platform doesn't use the key name "super" anywhere.
