Dead right. Please do not do that to Vassal. Short cut keys make the
program much quicker once you come up to speed and can drop the mouse
for some of the functions.

In Windows world there are many programs which don't have good short cut
key assignments, which is part of what makes working in Windows world a
real pain. Good software has short cut keys there for when you become
experienced enough to dump the mouse. I would have actually argued for
MORE short cut key assignments, especially in the module editor because
that is one place where I am constantly click-click-clicking

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think barbanera is coming from the
Windows perspective, and wants a program where you spend your whole time
clicking to get things done. Is this correct? Personally I will give
this the big thumbs down and vote against this. We need more short cut
keys not less.
