In windoze, C-x/C-c/C-v _are_ the `advanced' features...

Most `average' windoze users I've observed using a windows program seem
to use the cut/copy/paste menu items instead (usually while I grit my teeth).

I think those sophisticated enough to graduate to using the keyboard
will probably do just fine by simply looking at the key-bindings
displayed in the menus.
