Thanks for your feedback.

I think it goes in the opposite direction: if a command is bound to
C-c KEY or C-c C-KEY then KEY should be used as a speed command.

The mnemonic here is: `x' reminds me of [x] -- let's see if something
better can be done.

I wanted to keep it close to C-c #, and use only C-c KEY.

Categories are (most often) attached to a subtree.

When you hit the `<' speed command on this subtree then display
the agenda, you don't need to filter by category with `<' since
the narrowing already filters (by category) for you.

That's actually one of the reason for which I propose this key.

The way to get the same behavior than `C-c @' is `C-c C-^ M-h'.
M-h is very very handy, and probably not known enough!
