        Given that I edit texts which may be deemed bilingual (Russian
        prose interspersed with source code or command line examples)
        not just occasionally, /and/ need C-s, C-r at that, – no,
        I don’t think it’d work all that well for me.

        It’s not that bad, but still; consider, e. g.:

«Ты пророк», вскричал я, «вещий! Птица ты иль дух зловещий,
Этим Небом, что над нами — Богом скрытым навсегда —
Заклинаю, умоляя, мне сказать, — в пределах Рая
Мне откроется ль святая, что средь ангелов всегда,
Та, которую Ленорой в небесах зовут всегда?»
    Каркнул Ворон: «Никогда».

        Nine such characters per 43 words.

        My ‘Alt’ is ‘Meta’ most of the time, so it’s rather C-x 8 [,
        C-x 8 ], etc. for me, and reserving that for typography isn’t
        really a big deal.
