The other advantage of defining specific function is consistency across
aircraft models. As as user, I'd want to know that a certain key drops
the arrestor hook, and that that same key drops the hook in all aircraft
that have one. If we just make aircraft modellers use a certain set of
keys, inconsistencies should spring up.

I think that would be a good idea there seems to be enough room
on the keyboard to keep every one happy. Then the modelers
would know what keys they could use without running the risk
of screwing up other parts of the keyboard.
