yes, I know... Command-T is your friend! I'm using it more and more,  
but sometimes it's more convenient for me to browse the structure of  
my project (using the cursor keys)...

ah, thanks for the tip. but I'll pass on this one: in case of doubt  
I'd rather stick to the custom keybindings and shortcuts.

perhaps there's an easy way to ignore the project drawer widgets? I'd  
rather give up accessing *those* via the keyboard (never do, anyway)  
and the ctrl-tab would do the toggeling without changing any other  

at any rate nothing to lose sleep over ;-)
