For the proper context, I would like to add the following:
over time some 'classic' OpenOffice short cut keys have been changed to
meet people's expectation when coming from Excel.
Now Kohei has been so good to add .. Option > Calc > Compatibility.
There all keys can be switched at once.

I'm not sure if it will be a success if _all_ the short cuts that are to
be identified as from Excel, will be changed with one single switch ;)
But that point is certainly at table for discussion..
