Re: CF: extra keybindings, vs status quo

	I definitely use bindings on almost every key press combination
	there is (like 100+).

	Im not sure what the issue is with not allowing shift-, control-,
	meta-, and alt- keypress combinations. Why does shift-D have
	to be a "fire" key? All we need to provide is that the shift-<move>
	keys allow firing in a certain direction. Similarly, allowing
	contr-<movekey> for runing. I can certainly think of an implementation
	where non-movement keys combined with these modifier keys allow
	you to do something else. I dont think its confusing for the
	client user to have this situation either. 

	I'll take a look at your new code tonight.
