If think so then I'm afraid that you didn't read my posts carefully or
misinterpreted them.

Yes, I'm used to some combinations and I fail to see the reason why
should I change my customs. I doubt the new ones would improve my speed
or any other quality. I sure can replace default shortcut set with
the other quite easily but not everyone would if it had to be done by
seeking the right file and placing another in its stead. My poll is
tiny (2 persons beside myself) but at least it is real. So 3 graphic
developers says: we'd like to have it, how about you? That's all. Not
we demand, we require, but we'd like to. I've stated the reasoning
behind my suggestion a couple of times and right now I can't think of
other arguments “for”.

That's true, but also it is _not_ the point of the whole conversation to

My proposition, if applauded, could give him one thing to help at. But
even if not, I feel that threads that state the problem and propose a
way of solving it are great sources of tasks for anybody who's willing
to do some work. Surely one would see that if only considered things

Pointless it is if it doesn't bring any changes but that can be said
only after it's over. Right now I can see that there's at least a will
to at least make things clearer about the subject in documentation.
