    I don't think it is applicable here because you can be pretty much
    mouse-less on a desktop so that you can type everything with two

    In Gimp you have only one hand (the other one is on the
    mouse/tablet). Either you lose time going back and forth between
    mouse and keyboard to use both hands on the keyboard, or your
    non-mouse hand goes in hunt-and-peck mode on the keyboard half it
    is not accustomed to.

So I'm the only one using keyboard shortcuts then? You actually File->Save with your *mouse*? How to you enter text on your text layers?

Inputting text for text layers is a completely different matter.

I do use shortcuts (including Ctr-S and Ctrl-E...) but these are mostly on the left side of the keyboard. Ctrl-shift-N is already rather awkward despite my long fingers. The [] tp set the brush size are out of reach (on my AZERTY, these require the AltGr key). I mostly switch tools using the tools palette (where I removed those I seldom use and added some others).

What I would love is an extension of the Tool palette to include filters.
