[Bf-committers] Holding Non Modifier Keys, more weird things

I am a bit concerned about the changes how to handle the keyboard. We 
have now two (at least) keys which need to be hold and are no modifier 
keys (Shift/Alt/Ctrl). This is the KKEY for the knife (K Hold and LMB) 
and D while drawing with the grease pencil. Why these two exceptions? It 
is always a hard thing to tell students NOT to hold G/S/R for example, 
because this makes it easy to use modifiers (like XYZ or Shift-Z) and 
that this is a good thing, no fiddeling with Icons or Menues etc. I 
really would hat to explain why K and D are exceptions here...

Another one is the weird cursor key behaviour when translating. I know 
that it was a hack in 2.4x but I really miss this feature, makes it so 
hard to adjust a position just very slightly.

Another thing is the missing possibility in the outliner to select with 
AKEY or Border Select. Ok this is a feature reurest ;-)
