Hi everyone,

I tend to agree with the arguments that "n" and "p" should move
vertically in the agenda buffer, because many Emacs modes do
it like this.

So it seem to me that this discussion should focus on which keys should
move the agenda forward and backward in time.

C-n and C-p, like in any Emacs buffer?

Sure. That's a given. But they seem to be the fallback, IMO.

As Leo wrote: ibuffer, gnus, dired & others all use 'n' for next
line and 'p' for previous line.

And with the recent mark and unmark feature inspired by dired, doing
what it does, seems intuitive as far as emacs goes.

Another example I can think of:
 epa-list-keys uses 'n' and 'p' and 'm' and 'u' for the same things
 as dired and ibuffer.

Basically it's the Principle Of Least Surprise. "n", "p" doing what it
does now falls under it for me, based on all the other software I use.
