For me, what seems intuitive comes from looking at column 1 and column 
2 on the screen (or the comm command).  Having them right next to e 
helps, and I use the right hand for hitting return.  It seems to go 
much quicker for me.

The thing is, there are enough people used to the current behavior 
and/or find it intuitive that I don't want to argue about whether to 
change or keep the current defaults.  Such arguments drain energy and 
keep anybody from moving forward.
