No, I don't know either ... and I tend to agree with you. While it obviously provides the programmer with more control, I think actually breaking the loop paradigm is almost certainly bad (I haven't been able to think of a good use
for it yet).  I mentioned this in the setNextKeyView: documentation.

Basically, what I did was try to mimic the MacOS-X behavior as closely
as I could.

Ok ... I wonder if that's what we want, but since you made the effort to
be compatible, it's nice to have it.

I've not tested it, but I assume you did. :-)

Well ... I ran the test program, and a few variations on it.
I don't think you can call that exhaustive testing, but it's a fair bit.
What I don't know is if this change breaks the behavior of any other classes
or applications.
