Not many.  Just a few that I want to humor.

I do not want the keys listed in the help text of the Search menu;
their functions don't make sense there.

There are several other "blind keys", like ^U and ^K at the prompts,
^G in the help viewer, ^X in the linter, Q and <Space> and ^C in the
file browser and the help viewer, to name just a handful.

No one complained about those.  As long as no one speaks up, I am
guessing that very few people use those keystrokes.
