This is going to totally screw up a macro I've been using for 15+ years. 
I know I'm a voice in the wilderness but if this gets officially 
implemented I hope there's an option to turn it off, or supply your own 
key combination.

I use control-tab to switch between edit and browse mode because the 
built-in combo is impossible for me to reach comfortably. You can 
imagine how ingrained that is by now. Please give us some control over 
the behavior.
