Potlatch: Request for keyboard shortcuts

Description

To improve usability, I suggest the following:

1) Add shortcut for three-way toggle between background on, background on and faded, and background off. (It's often very hard to see service roads, because they're the same colour as the road itself.) 2) Modify the "B" shortcut so it fills in the source with the last source you added. IMHO it's a bit useless atm, because it doesn't even focus the edit box, so typing "+so" is actually more efficient. A single shortcut to add the source would be good. 3) Even better would be (optionally) automatically tagging every item you create with the same source - how often are you going to be switching between GPS, Yahoo, Nearmap... 4) Add shortcut/option for "hide all areas". It's really annoying trying to add details to a park, university, hospital etc, and be constantly working under the green/grey/red overlay... 5) Add shortcut/option for "hide all boundaries": I really never, ever want to see administrative boundaries. They just get in the way. 6) Shortcut to merge two adjoining ways into one, after clicking the node that connects them. Maybe there's already a way but I can't figure it out. Maybe shift-X, because it does the opposite of X. 7) Ability to change the shortcuts. I find + a *really* inconvenient key for such a common action. (Perhaps you could add ` as an alternative). 8) Not a shortcut, but would be good to have a smoother way to create an offshoot from the middle of a way. Currently it's shift+click,click,click! Perhaps ctrl+click could do all of those in one.
