The delete key is the trickiest one. I like having it
on the home row, and I didn't want to have to re-train for
that one, so I remapped it to the same finger on the same
hand -- what is now `e'. This does mean you can't go to the
end of words now, but you can go to the end of Words. The
distinction between the two in vim is fine enough that it
doesn't bother me, and I've learned to hit `E' instead of `e'
when I want to move forward by the ends of words.

``Alternately,'' says Jason Lunz,6, ``if
you're willing to learn a new delete key, you can just
replace d with j or k. I didn't want to relearn the muscle
memory, and it's nice to have delete on home row because it's
so frequently used.''
