Okay, now the plain 'd' and 'u' make sense, and the
plain 'e' and 'y'.  But I still don't understand why
M-n starts a search -- it only /repeats/ a search in
both vim and less.  The thing is: if M-n hadn't been
bound to search in vi mode, it could have been bound
to next-node instead, which makes for a single keystroke
instead of the double ^xn.  M-u and M-p are still free
for up-node and prev-node.  Those bindings would have
made more mnemonic sense, when seen next to M-b, M-e,
M-f, M-g, M-t, and M-d.
