I agree that Enter should do the same thing as double-click. But it
seems weird that Spacebar does anything; could we prevent if from
having any effect, at least in lmi?

It also blocks Alt-Spacebar, which should pull down the system menu;
I rely on that.

Would it be possible to map something else (e.g., Alt-Enter) to the
inline-editing handler, in addition to F2? F2 is natural because of
the spreadsheet analogy; but I'd like a synonym (other than Spacebar)
that's easier for me to reach than an F key.
