I know I've said this before but here it is again: having the
directional keys as [hjkl] is much more efficient than using the
keypad. If you're typing a lot, your hands are probably on the "home
row" anyways so why would you want to remove them just to
send/swap/select a client?

There's a reason these keys are used in vi.
