   ;; C-n creates the new frame which is a child of the current frame.  Note 
   ;; by default Emacs uses 'next-line' on C-n but in modern installations this 
   ;; redundant because most users use the arrow keys IMO.

I hope not!  The arrow keys are much less efficient than using C-n and
C-p.  I hope that most current users are as concerned with wasting
their and others' time as in the past.

Arrow keys are excellent when you don't know what you are doing.  But
after 15 minutes or so, I would hope everyone learns to become more

Left hand little finger to the left of the `a' key; right hand first
finger on the `n' key; or else, right hand little finger on the `p'
key.  That is much quicker than moving your whole hand to reach an
arrow key.

(I have bound the arrow keys to functions that call `(scroll-up 1)'
and `(scroll-down 1)'; I use them sometimes, but not as often as C-n
and C-p.)
