I completely agree with this approach - additionally,
it could be used to keep the best from both worlds. 
Simply keep the old "number"-shortcut functional _AND_
add a usual hotkey for them. So the new options would
just get a hotkey - and the old functions would react
to TWO keys - EITHER their new (logical for new users)
hotkey OR their old (for old users used to it) number
