   US keyboards have Alt on both sides, except for Mac keyboards.  In any 
case, if keyboard navigation is your biggest concern, konsole is easily 
accessible too.  The existence of the Up action (in the toolbar) is for mouse 
use.  The icon idea is slower for mouse navigation.  If you don't like 
Alt+Up, you can always rebind it to another key.

   Which conflicts with "Delete" on Mac keyboards at least.
