I just tried 2.0.3 with it's new mapping for osx and ehm...well...it's 
not really useful for me. Of course I can turn it off and set it to the 
normal mapping. But the point is that on osx, you can remap the keys to 
whatever you want. So, e.g. I have remapped ctrl+left to next word, 
ctrl-pgup to begin of document etc, like on windows. It is even possible 
to remap entirely to emacs. Osx apps that are properly made, recognize 
this. So, it's not right to hard-code this. That's what I don't like 
about firefox for instance. It totally ignores key-mappings.

So,,for me, it's back to 'normal' personality ;-)
