    For plan9/Inferno? No. Must have missed that.

    I'm also somewhat convinced that holding down anything
    is annoying, stressing and possibly damaging. I especially
    hate waiting for chords and menus to work over a very high
    latency drawterm connection. Sending something and waiting
    for it to complete (keypress, click) is easier.

    I have used vi/ed over quite massive lags. It's only annoying
    if your mental model gets out of synch with the receiver
