I disagree with alt-n and alt-p not considered useful. Either can
be done using TWO fingers. Needing three fingers for backwards-tab
navigation is quite awkward for me.
BTW, the existing XO implementation is a non-standard ctl-alt-tab,
instead of alt-shift-tab.
[I don't actually care how you set the defaults -- I customize
keyhandler.py on my XO for my own preferences anyway (and if that
makes it more difficult for someone else to use my XO, I'd rather
make things easier for me than avoid customization).]

Whenever I'm at home, I plug an USB keyboard into my XO. It is not
silly for me to assign an unused F-key to 'frame' - again, that is
something that makes using the XO easier for me.
