While I agree that preserving reasonable defaults should be done, there 
seems to be serious disagreement as to whether the current defaults 
actually do make sense.  :-)

I am content to let any interested committer make that decision, but I 
ask that  whoever first go through a trial mergemaster session using 
'1' & '2' as the keys.  'q' and 'e' are right there, and I found the 
improvement compared to using 'l' & 'r' immediately obvious and more 

Your mileage may vary.
