Ctrl+A does not even consistently work within windows. (Works in
normal input lines, but not in combo boxes, so if you try Ctrl+A in
MSIE, it does nothing).

Ctrl+E,N seem unused, Ctrl+P is sometimes print dialog.

That shows that windows do not have too consistent ctrl+ keys, and it
would be better to stay with emacs. [Hey, you don't won't to be more
