The number of keystrokes alone is not a completely valid test of 
efficiency.  Each keystroke could be assigned a weight of 
easiness/quickness.  For example the "a" key is much easier/quicker to 
press than the "_" key.  So 8 alpha keys could be much quicker than 4 
function keys.  I'm just sayin...
