My first comment as a frequent user of that button is : thanks, but no

My second comment, which is more of a question, would be : where is the
evidence to back up your statement of "its not used very much" ? I don't
recall seeing any questions being asked on any of the OOo forums or on
the discuss or user mailing lists.

My third remark is : I take it that you have deactivated the DSB
(datasource browser) functionality at the same time and freed up F4 for
something else you might deem more useful ? (with a slight tinge of
irony in my voice).

Thin end of the wedge IMO.
