Not at all. You see I've got a slight problem. My C-h key was bound to
backspace on the emacs system I learned on years ago, so I never learned the above key-bindings. 

And after reading a couple recent threads where its usefulness has
appeared manifest, I've been stewing about what to do. Unlearn one and
learn the others? Are there other commonly used alternatives?

I don't want to do it wrong twice.
