The former is just fine.  Either add Fn to that, or switch the 
preference in the keyboard preferences.  The latter is a pain.  Allan: 
maybe we could have some sort of workaround so that full-size keyboards 
could still use the help/insert key, but laptops could use some 
alternate keystroke.  Given that this is the only key on a desktop 
keyboard which cannot be imitated on an apple laptop (!), I think a 
hard-coded workaround would be somewhat justified.  It's too useful a 
key to deny to desktop users, but leaving commands that use it 
desktop-only is also a shame.
