Alright, I’ll implement the arrow keys with ⌃⌥ for now, at least it’s better 
than nothing.

Aha, I did not notice this conflict. In the interest of keeping the shortcuts 
consistent with each other I think all of them should be changed again. I 
propose these:

Split Vertically: ⌃⌥D
Split Horizontally: ⌃⌥⇧D
Remove Current Split: ⌃⌥W
Remove Other Splits: ⌃⌥⇧W

so that all the split related command would use ⌃⌥ as their base. Are there any 
conflicts with these that I have missed?

That sounds great. Thanks.
