Great!  Glad to see that more and more people are using the NLS.

My opinion is that the hot keys (input) should remain as they always have
been, and should remain static.  I, and I doubt any of my compatriots, have
any problem whatsoever with:

[O]?????????? [P]???? [G]?????? [W]?????? [Q]???? [/]???? [Backsp]????????

which is the equivalent of the string you mention, customized for our site.

Note that the present handling of Y/N already introduces a bug which has
not been addressed by changes in the code.  Be careful how you translate
