non-english speakers will maybe remap LYK_PRINT to 'd' as in "Drucken",
but page maps to 's' as in "Seite". So we either introduce a LYK_* for
that (which will only be active in that special mode) or hardcode 'p',
which isn't a bad idea anyway, as it's consistent and compatible.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
