Can we add a keyboard shortcut to the customizer for collapsing/expanding the left panel?

Suggest won't fix due to potential conflicts with assistive technology. Might be a good plugin though.

As pointed out by esmi in #21283:

For that reason my own recommendation would be to not employ keystrokes here.

Loudly seconded! The last time a group of us looked at what keys were available once you removed all AP software keys and took multiple languages into account, there were only about 3 keys left apart from the numerics. Use anything apart from 0-9 and you will hijack someone's AT. Ten numbers don't exactly leave you a lot to play with given that you also need to use them consistently right across the board.

I use WordPress an inordinate amount of time :) and I'm a big fan of keyboard shortcuts. In WordPress, comment moderation keyboard shortcuts are opt in (Users → Your Profile → Keyboard Shortcuts), so maybe customizer keyboard shortcuts could be the same.
