Well, ctrl-n, ctrl-p for next and previous line and ctrl-f, ctrl-b for
next and previous character. If you're using the arrow keys you don't
suffer (but you fail for being insufficiently lazy about moving your
hands) but considering how much you use them, your hands are reluctant
to change.

Yes, that wasn't lost on me, but I thought it worth mentioning.
