OK, we’ll see how this evolves.

I think it should be the other way around. You should be able to set the NewRPL keys by assigning them to USER keys. Not being imposed a new keys scheme to begin with.

[quoteI find the two menus very useful, personally. I keep one for the VAR menu and the other for everything else. Very handy for programming in particular! The reassigned STO key does take a little getting used to, I'll admit.

I get your drift. Everyone has their own habits and way of doing things. However, as with the keys, these features should be user-defined options, not imposed on you to begin with.
To me, a new system or firmware should look the same as the “original” one, but be way better under-the-hood. Faster, more options maybe, or more flexible and efficient, I should say. Although NewRPL has, I guess, mostly achieved the latter, the former is very, very much to be desired...

I know, but thank you. I appreciate your input.
