You are an _extremely_ rare case then, I think -- even quite bad typists
usually use two hands when necessary to type emacs modifier bindings.  To
not do so makes _many_ bindings in emacs hard to type.

It's obvious that your experience is inappropriate for judging emacs
bindings.  [Indeed, harmful: what you find good, most people would probably
find bad.]
