William Reynish (billreynish) added a comment to D5011: Keyboard shortcut mapping for macOS "Dvorak - QWERTY ⌘" layout.

@Colin Kinloch (ColinKinloch) I see - yes I guess this change makes sense. But, Blender makes heavy use of keyboard shortcuts without holding modifier keys - shortcuts like G, R, S and others. It would be inconsistent if those still were in DVORAK, but anything with a modifier (Shift, Control, Command, Alt) was using QWERTY.
