A few notes on keybindings
I am not completely opposed to changing some keybindings. However, the current ones fall into three catagories:
- “Keepers” ones that I like and would need a very good reason to change.
- “Lukewarm” ones I understand but don't particularily like very much.
- “Changers” ones I would change in a heartbeat if I had an alternative.
The breakdown is as follows:
The following CTRL keys are currently unused:
CTRL-Q and CTRL-S I do *not* want to use without alternates as they are the Xon/Xoff chars used in flow control and are sometimes impossible to send from a terminal.
I am open to suggestions.
