how so?  can you give an outline of this?  ASCII appreciated.

work on "layouts" has begun, as announced on 2020-03-13:

change your keyboard layout then! :-P

simply rebind this, eg to 'Q':

     bind index Q sidebar-toggle-visible

of course in this case 'Q' for "query" is kinda lost. ;-)

this is how i see you message with sidebar-toggle-visible:

remember: "something easier" might be "someting harder" for others.
