The whole keymap of VC-dired has the meaning of VC stuff.

The prefix `v' is redundant in VC-dired.

In Dired `dired-unmark' is bound to `u'.  Why Dired needs another
key sequence `* u' that is longer to type.  Since it makes no sense
to use `* u' in Dired, this key can be used in VC-dired for other purposes.
