While I think using F11 for full screen is fine for consistency with other
programs, I don't use keyboard macros often enough to justify binding f3 and f4.
On the other hand, we really don't do enough to publicize keyboard macros. No
other editor has good macro support, and the feature is a great competitive
advantage for Emacs. It'd be nice to introduce new users to keyboard macros
