Show/Hide Gnome-panel on key press.


I'm currently using PCLinuxOS 2007 with a Gnome DE.

I now that you can set the panel to auto hide and re apear when the cursor moves along the edge of the screen or you can setup the "<" and ">" buttons to hide it and show it.

What I want to do is have a set of shortcut keys to show and hide it instead. Some thing like "Ctrl+Alt+DownArrow"

I do have Compiz 3D interface running.

I just hate when I move my mouse to far and the panel pops down. But, it would be nice to hide the panel when it is not being used.

is this possible?
