A month ago I blogged about ways to reduce strenuous key presses in my Emacs use. I analyzed my runs of chords in Emacs, then speculated on the merits of exclusive vs mixed editing. Since then I wrote an Emacs mode called god-mode. It’s a mode that you toggle in and out of, and when you’re in it, all keys are implicitly prefixed with
C-(among other helpful shortcuts). Over all, it’s been a resounding success. A couple other people, including the author of multiple mark mode, contributed some patches. I’ve been using it for a month and have been very satisfied.
