    Personally (but know I'm speaking for others) I hate the MSVC++ debugger,
    editor, insistence on doing things for you, condition of the generated
    makefiles and, well, pretty much everything about it.
    Using function keys for the above is illogical.  Please let's not go 
    down this path.
