  Yes, those shortcuts exist long time. I would like to change them for these specific reasons which I think are worth to be considered:
  1. Introduce a default shortcut pair for "Next / Prev Match" which is useful and currently missing.
  2. "Free" some F keys to have them available for user-defined shortcuts; for me that would be those needed for developing (run, debug, stepping, stop and what else comes in handy; probably KDevelop would also profit to have F10 and F11 freed). I think it is easier for the user to choose one of the F keys for those actions than to find a free Ctrl+... combination. At least I have those problems regularly when trying to add useful custom shortcuts.
  Extended shortcuts are often used in advanced editors and IDEs. I would be happy if there are other ideas that would address those issues.
