Well, of course there is no such thing as "best" binding, it is a matter
of personal preferences what is best. Personally I prefer function keys
to be grouped by direction and function. E.g. ^D to move a word to the 
left and ^F to move a word to the right. I don't like mnemonics key
names such as ^B for back and ^F for forward. First, because that
should be ^A and ^V ("achteruit" and "vooruit" in case you don't speak 
Dutch). Second, the designers of the qwerty keyboard did not have 
cursor movement in mind, or else B and F would be next to each other.

This served to align items in the Options screen. The line edit style 
is now on a line by itself, but I seem to remember that it once shared 
a line with another item that was to the right of it.
