Did find florian in here, so I hope it's fine that assign this to you @Sebastian Koenig (sebastian_k)

I am looking at a bunch of issues in NodeWrangler already, will put that on my desk...

note: original issue from the report seems resolved (Ctrl+Space works for maximizing / Ctrl+Alt+Space works for maximizing+hiding panels)
But instead Ctrl+Shift+Space is now taken by screen.animation_play (reverse mode), so calling node wrangler menu NODE_MT_nw_node_wrangler_menu wont work anymore...

Looking at what is still free, we could instead take Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Space? (this might be a bit obscure...)
Or Shift+W (as an 'alternative' context menu)?

At least for me personally, I would prefer shorter commands (like Shift+W) as it feels that Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Space is a bit too many keys.
