I've not examined them all in detail; let's just say that some of them seem
obviously useful and not dangerous, e.g., `dired-jump' and
`dired-do-find-marked-files' (I've seen the latter functionality requested
several times recently on #emacs), whereas others seem less useful, and
maybe don't merit a keybinding by default (e.g., `dired-man').
`dired-vm-read-only-folders' probably shouldn't be there, as VM isn't
distributed with emacs or really all that commonly used (and for a long
time, didn't even officially support non-xemacs).

But I generally agree with you.  At the least, the split into dired and
dired-x seems arbitrary and deserves re-examination.


Joy, n. An emotion variously excited, but in its highest degree arising from
the contemplation of grief in another.
