There may be users who wish to plug in an external keyboard.  Such
external keyboards often have function keys grouped in sets of four.
Such grouping places F5 at the beginning of a row of four keys, and
places F6 in the middle of a row of four keys.

Suppose users might be pressing the key for 'frame' more often than the
key for 'search'.  Should the 'frame' function be assigned to the F5
key, since on external keyboards the F5 key might be easier to locate ?
