I'm not trying to fault anyone.  I just have a problem I'm trying to
fix.  I often spend 14 hours a day in my window manager, and the
keystrokes are built into my neurons now.  And alas, I don't have
much time to futz with a new config (so it's easier just to maintain
an old version forever unless this is a trivial matter).
