I tried it in WinBoard now, and I think I also found the ideal key for this.

<Enter> in WinBoard as already taken, because it is forwarded to the ICS console. (The XBoard equivalent would be to make it trigger sending the message currently
in the ICS input box.)

I tried <Tab>, but there the system already intercepts the key-down events, as it
is a standard binding for changing between input field.

But then I noticed the <Backspace> key. It is larger than most, universally present
on keyboards it had no binding yet, and its name ideally matches the function!

Making the auto-repeat move the piece back and forth also looks quite nice.
