Thank you.  I was wondering if anyone cared.
It's nice to hear praise from the person
whose work you hope you've approved upon.
And I agree with your suggestions.

One more thing: The list should appear twice.
The first time the commands should be grouped by type of function
The second time they should be sorted by key sequence as they are now.

Would you volunteer to do this?  I'm new to Fred and emacs.
