Fingers are also effectively a scripting environment; I think the
other _monotone_ developers would lynch us if we tried to make them
relearn "up" or "ci". Never mind the actual user base :-).
Since you're such an avid user of the command expansions... can you
give more details on which ones you use? If nothing else, it will
teach us more about how people actually use the tool... and "command
expansions get used in practice" is probably the most compelling
argument you could make for them anyway ;-).
