I'll add them and see if anyione objects. Looking into this question,  
I'm finding that there are several common movement and selection  
commands that don't have bindings or don't work in Hemlock right now.  
I'll see if I can improve that situation (but I also need to  
characterize it well enough to write a decent Trac ticket for it).

Heck if I know; I was just looking at that myself, and scratching my  
head about it. I'll see if I can fix that, too.

Yeah, that's unexpected, too. I guess I know what I'll be working on  
for the next few days.

Thanks for all the input; it's very helpful.
