Well that makes any other talk unnecessary.  So long as it’s an addition
and not a replacement (sorry for not noticing that part, a lot of
suggestions in these threads are at the cost of breaking existing users’
workflows that I read yours with some prejudice), it’s all the better
for everyone.  Good old TIMTOWDY.

FWIW, that’s been the case for a pretty long time, and even these days
where I’m on a more traditional desktop (Cinnamon) I rarely find myself
using menus.  Tho the set of applications I consistently use is rather
small (Emacs, Qutebrowser/Firefox, Okular, Zotero, Terminal every now
and then), so I tend to know a decent chunk of keyboard shortcuts.
