I agree.  And in an educational setting, teachers rarely ever change  
the default keys (which is why they should be good in the first place)

I like the defaults now (except for a few keys such as the mentioned  
"c" key).  If i was that fed up with them i'd just modify my source.   
One could argue, that users, as long as they build their own blender,  
already have custom keyboard schemes.
