The default bindings suck because (1) your control key is in the wrong place and (2) your meta key is in the wrong place. The first goes to the left of "A", the second underneath "/". Seriously: remap (getting meta right is hard, as keyboards aren't consistent about what they put there sadly) and try it again. When done right, your fingers stay closer to the home row than even vim (which requires frequent excursions to the shifted number row).

Nah, I have remapped those keys and the problem for me is the chords which sometimes require three or more actions for commonly used commands.
