I use this technique sometimes, and it sounds like a good idea, but how
would The Program know when to revert back to the slower setting? I would
go nuts if The Program decided to drop my speed by about 12 WPM when I
wasn't expecting it! I am very happy with how flexible The Program is at
present (regarding CW speed) with one exception (and, of course, I say this
without R'ing TFM, and it could be different by now): I would rather have
the increment of CW speed user defined - 3 WPM is too great a step for my
taste, and PgUp-PgDn is much easier than typing in the speed by hand.
P.S. If indeed this has been changed, only one RTFM response is required,
