Re: Keymap for grow, pack, shrink & yank

 Teika> Hi. Does anyone like this idea? It's a keymap for gpsy = grow, pack,

I was reading the manual few days ago I discovered these functions. :) I
wish I knew them for few years. ;)

I think it would be great to have such mode.

It could be hacked using keymaps. 

Define a keymap for each of the 4 modes, where each arrow has a
different use.

Define a keymap for the GPSY, where g, p, s, y point to each of the
other keymaps.

of course this does not allow to easily move from one mode to another
(I don't think it will be a good idea to have recursive keymaps).


 Teika> Focus move by cursor in tandem must help. In focus move mode, press
 Teika> 'up' and the focus moves to an upper lying window. (Are there already

 Teika> For shrink, some people may revert the cursor meaning, so 'up' affects

 Teika> I don't use gpsy myself, so it's a mere suggestion.
