Well, if you don't want to be a pianist, maybe you shouldn't 
be using a piano keyboard...

Since switching to a Kinesis contoured model, I've been a
lot more inclined to use the function keys for things, even
if they are (cheesy little chicklet pad keys).  The emacs
keystroke space is already a little crowded, so if you want
to assign your macros to keys, function keys are pretty
useful.

Meanwhile, a little closer to the topic, is there anyone
familiar with both midnight commander and dired who's 
willing to expound on the advantages of mc?
