I fully agree.

In your other mail you said, the shifted joystick keys are currently in
use, can you tell for what?

OK, you're right, that is another way. But here we come back to the
question, wether unshifted keys should be used for looking around and
shifted keys for virtual moving. I again say, the unshifted keys should
only look around and not change the virtual position.


Because of the bad readability in context.
