Thanks for writing about it, it seems to be one of those Japanese
innovations that is little known in the West!

Personally, I use a Kinesis Advantage keyboard on my main machine, for
which you use your thumbs for ctrl/alt/space. I will try out "SandC"
on my other machine that has a conventional layout, it sounds like an
excellent idea.
