That would be fine.  Unix people are used to "/", while Firefox users
and anyone who came from a Windows background will expect Ctrl-F.  But
*no one* will expect Ctrl-S, or (god forbid) Ctrl-Alt-anything.

Doesn't anyone care about the principle of least surprise?  Or do you
really expect users to read the manual to discover the key bindings?
