Hi Paul,

I dislike this.  Must be my preference for Python's `one way to do it'
over Perl's `there must still be one more way we haven't added yet'.
:-)  `-' doesn't need Shift and fingers are used to typing it before a
digit or two.  I've happily got along with lp:-3 for years without
wishing for a shorter method, and double-tapping the same key isn't
particularly quick, unlike the rollover of `=-'.

Cheers, Ralph.
