imho it is not a problem to have "hidden" features, if knowledge of
such features is not required. at least we have some bonus for people
rading the manual then. however i certainly support implementing the
panning feature for the space key, because it is more useful than the
current switch to move tool. i can live with normal keys for switching
tools, even if it requires one more keypress.
A simple shift-key modifier (or the like) perhaps? I use the space-move
tool too, especially when placing text as these are, for me, the most
common "off-size" type of layer.
A bit of a nuisance though, the fact that it is the space key sometimes
causes it to put a random number of spaces in the text.... I guess
that's another issue. :)
