multikey

Description

This patch allows you to use a single key combination to trigger different functions based on the number of times you press the key combination consecutively within a short period of time. This is accomplished by modifying the Key struct to add a new int field npresses which can be:

   0 = Trigger keybinding on 1 keypress (ignoring multikey functionality)
   1 = Trigger keybinding on 1 keypress 
   2 = Trigger keybinding on 2 successive keypresess 
   3 = Trigger keybinding on 3 successive keypresess
...n = Trigger keybinding on n successive keypresses

The maximum / last value set for the key combination can also be triggered by holding the key down.

In the example added to the config.def.h, the tiling layout is set when Mod+w is tapped once, float layout is set when Mod+w is tapped twice, and monocole layout is set when Mod+w is tapped three times (or held down).
