Wise. When I started using hotlist I was confused what all those
buttons really mean.

I think we should leave users the choice and allow button hotkeys
duplication (hotlist hotkeys shoud take precedence). If one doesn't
want to have his button hotkey obscured - he will choose another
hotkey for his entry.

As Pavel said there are duplicates even in the menu. We should leave
the decision to user and the first entry should take precedence. This
will be convinient with the rest of mc.

I would prefer standard approach like:
"My &favourite directory"
where 'f' will be a hotkey.
