Hi Fredrik,

Please find an updated version of the patch attached to this e-mail. I
hope that you still accept it via e-mail because the former patch was
sent the same way ;-).

I have extended the documentation to list the new key combinations and
added tests to make sure they work.

Kind regards,

Dr. Stefan Zegenhagen
