Good. That is constructive, and I agree with the ^L thing.

But that is not. Code which makes one's point visible is constructive;
whining that "fuckheads" don't agree with you and that nobody wants to
implement your pet features is not so.

Anyway, I find your ergonomic Emacs keybindings[1] interesting, and it's
nice that there is code available. I found the keybindings too
intrusive, though, so I implemented my own map which only changes
certain cursor movement keys. It's a global minor mode with its own mode
map so it can be turned on and off easily. The code is here:
