once upon a time i hammered on the katies ;) until they implemented two
things: alt-<number> to switch to a particular buffer (like i knew it
from borland c) and shift-ctrl-<number> to set and ctrl-<number> to goto
a bookmark. now i checked again ... and guess what? either the features
are very well hidden or they are plainly gone again. wtf?!
not that i'm terribly sad - i just keep using mcedit. not that it's
particularly good at *anything*, but the simple fact that it's away just
one press of F4 from a keyboard-only file manager and this very manager
is away only one press of ESC, is close to unbeatable. having the shell
one Ctrl-O away and particularly being back in the editor with the same
shortcut (instead of being keyboard-wise trapped in the shell view like
i was last time i tried kdevelop) is sort of invaluable.

Hi! I'm a .signature virus! Copy me into your ~/.signature, please!
Chaos, panic, and disorder - my work here is done.
