Although, come to think of it, picking specific letters for their ergonomic function does tie you to a specific keyboard layout as well. So maybe that's too big a swamp to wade into (although, if I had to use a laptop with no external mouse, I'd probably hack wily so that it worked in the way that I described). In other news...

It's never bothered me enough to complain, but maybe that's because my X servers are sufficiently fast for this. I am using the 9-libs version, but that's only because until yesterday I thought it was the official version (I got it from some supposedly official ftp site in Australia about a year ago). The comment about sam giving an I/O error also resonates with me -- sam-9libs won't start the graphics side for me, either on Linux 2.4 or Solaris 2.8 (although I recall it working on Solaris 2.6). But I'm probably wasting my breath, if the 9libs distribution is unofficial and unmaintained anyway.
