Have you tried org-mode?  It's a superset of outline-mode with a magic
TAB key to show/hide subparts.

Personally I use outline-minor-mode with reveal-mode, so that the
hiding/showing is done automatically as I move around the buffer.
Since the ESP communication is broken right now, it doesn't always do
quite what I want, but I like it.  YMMV.

So, I agree with you that outline-(minor-)mode's key bindings
aren't great.  This said, using M-next and such for a minor mode is
problematic (can interact with the underlying major mode), so such
bindings should at least depend on a user setting.
