dmenu uses alt for a couple of bindings. Apparently ctrl binds are
shell-like and alt binds are vim-like, which is a bit weird (also
M-p). I'd prefer to remove the alt ones. That said I do like ^[HJKL]
in dwm, surf, etc.

wrt uriel's unix shortcuts page, where do ^K and the other common ones come in?
