I'm a fan of Ryan Hanson's apps, including Charmstone and Hookshot. He's recently released another app called Hyperkey that is insanely useful for Alfred 4.5's Universal Actions. Specifically, I use Caps Lock as my Alfred activation key. I previous used Karabiner Elements to hook up F19 to Alfred, but discovered that it was overkill for this simple use case. Hyperkey allows me to map Caps Locks to F19 as my Hyperkey, and then F19 to Alfred without all the deep system modification: Here's the crazy awesome tie-up between Alfred 4.5 and Hyperkey: if you include "shift" in your Hyperkey setup, you can now activate Alfred 4.5's Universal Actions by pressing shift and then Caps Lock... easily the easiest keyboard combo you can imagine. Of course, would be cool if Alfred enabled this natively, but meanwhile, pretty stoked about this!
For advanced workflows it would be nice to be able to specify *combinations* of modifier keys when specifying action modifiers for workflow connections. For instance, allow an action modifier based on holding down *both* the Option and the Shift key. (I know there's potential for conflict with global hotkeys, such as Cmd-Opt-Return for the iTunes mini player.) Currently (Alfred 2.0.3), you're limited to a single modifier key.
