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.

No one?  ctrl-s makes perfect sense to me, that is what emacs uses.

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?
