Uh, those two are named wrong. Currently we have "focus next" and
"focus prev", and yes, I plan to add up/down/left/right and
upmost/downmost/leftmost/rightmost as well.

Good question. There are a couple of issues:

1) it breaks downward compatibility

2) in the old table the order of the two digraph keys does not matter.
   E.g. it contains
   and you can press either a" and "a to get an a-umlaut.
   This has the following use case: a user can bind

     bind : digraph \"

   and then get an a-umlaut by pressing ^A:a, an o-umlaut by pressing
   ^A:o and so on (so you have created an "umlaut" command). That's
   also why the old table has:
     s "  ->  LATIN SMALL LETTER SHARP S (German)

So it probably makes sense to make this configurable and ship screen
with both tables.
