The question before that is: is having keyboard shortcuts actually a 
good idea?

We used to have them for focussing various fields using the built-in 
browser mechanism, so the key combo was Ctrl-Shift-<Key>. Those didn't 
get much use, and we took them out. But if we use JS-based key capture, 
we could use individual keys without modifiers, and we could do more 
than just focus fields.

I'd like one for "scroll to and focus comment field". I might use that a 
lot. It would be nice to have one for "don't scroll at all, but CC me, 
and beep to tell me you've done it". Perhaps "add attachment"?
