input: minor additions to default key bindings
This adds key bindings for some semi-popular features. It also tries to cleanup some old bindings. For example w/e for panscan is now changed to w/W. In all cases, the old bindings are still kept and work, though. Part of an ongoing attempt to cleanup the default key bindings. See #973 for some context.
