As Gmail continues its slow (but sure?) trek towards integrating the keyboard shortcut goodness that is the Gmail Macros script in our very own Better Gmail Firefox extension, they've been throwing in lots of handy new shortcuts along the way.

On the other hand, the More Actions shortcut seems like a crippled version of the 'l' shortcut in Gmail Macros.
