But this encourages people to change them. I already said: Key bindings
are *not* like the colors.

It better does not become widely used, as ist totally breaks with the
concept of dmenu.

Dmenu is like it is, in order to not need to build such commands *into*

You probably should learn the concept behind dmenu first before you
argue on how dmenu should be.
