Not just that, but, as I have learned from a reliable source (perhaps at the
meeting code-named as some sort of "massacre"), SI developers are only
allowed to use keyboards containing no more than two keys: 0 and 1. To
achieve the effect of Enter, them po' folks have to press 0 and 1 in a
perfect sync (no more than 0.01 second apart). You would not think they get
their M&M's and all other perks for nothing, would you?
