Erm. It's not my keyboard code, I've just posted improvements to it ;)

Anyway, a small nit:

What if you have 12 channels? Then there'd be hell to pay. On the other
hand, Chris Cannam made the same argument when I suggested using Alt-Fx
for channel swapping, so there ;)

OTOH, I'm not using those quick keys anyway. The buttons on the right are
far too precious to waste. Imagine, 8 (10?) extra buttons, so you don't
lose any buttons some other apps might be coveting, like Alt-Right/Left on
Netscape and Alt-<whatever> on Emacs. I want one on my PC too.

The move wouldn't be such a big deal. However, people can use wmx without
ever using the command menu, and putting [Exit wmx] there would force them
to it. Your mileage may vary, of course.

Wonder if Chris will still recognize wmx when he gets back?)
Next, themes and Gnome/KDE compliance and a real config file and ... ;)
