Suggest creation of Help/Keystrokes, probably to point to

Better would be an on the fly generation of the keystroke list, but the link
would do in the mean time. There's a fair bit of menus to slither through to
find out what keystrokes are in use, and thus which aren't (more problematic).
[Proving a negative.]

I ran into this when trying to assign 'm' to toggle un/read, or even mark read,
and failed. (Wiki article on assignable keystrokes or more info would be
useful. [Beyond the keystroke info currently available.])

Then failed to see why m could't be assigned / what it was already assigned to
by looking through menus.

The wiki article notes "There are other key combinations which are assigned by
default to menu items. We won't list these here, as they are already shown on
the righthand side of the menus themselves ..." See above. Listing them
(defaults) here in the article would be useful - especially if one played then
wanted to go back to default, for that one keystroke only, but can't remember
what it was. (Absenting the keystroke list above.) Being able to say "click
Help/Keystrokes" instead would be useful (if doing so was an on the fly list).

The article also notes "Furthermore, if you don't like them, these shortcuts
can be changed on the fly by focusing on the menu item and pressing the desired
key combination." - evidently not always true. e.g. For 'm', which is why/how I
got to submitting this request. (Including wiki notes about unassignable

So, a few details / links towards constraints surrounding keystrokes and
keystroke assignment would be useful in this part of the wiki article, as well.

In the mean time,
