Humm, I don't, its not natural, I doubt anyone will think about using ,
and . to move by one character right/left, ditto for <>, I think we
should just recover <- and -> (left and right arrows) for navigation,
leave ENTER to be what -> was doing and esc for what <- does, in fact it
is already like that.
Probably using shift or control or alt + <- -> for moving one column at
at time is enough, but humm, is there value in that?
I'll try the patch and will try to do the changes as I described, will
