Yes, but what Birger was saying was hitting Ctrl+Tab 9-10 times to get 
to the option. This is much faster than that alternative.

My aim was to let people know what options already exist before 
proposing new ones.

Don't get me wrong. I am not against having a dedicated hotkey for 
toggling amends. I think it is a common enough operation to warrant a 
dedicated keyboard toggle. I was just letting everyone know what the 
current options are, so they can make better judgements whether they 
really need this option or not.
