So I tried it, and yes, I'm right thumbed. Next question
is of course, what do I use the left thumb for, at all?

Well, if I'm using the emacs editor (yes, I'm weird and
maybe very old-fashioned or extremely up to date) I use
my thumb on ALT for ALT-W and ALT-Q. These are mappings
kill-ring-save M-w, <C-insert>
Command: Save the region as if killed, but don't kill it.
fill-paragraph M-q
Command: Fill paragraph at or after point.
This stuff all make sense to me. Is emacs maybe an
intellectual virus? I've been infected for 30 years.

typing with seven fingers, 'cause the right index got
squished in a door yesterday.
