Original post follows.

I was thinking for the next group buy it would be cool to have a Vim escape key.  Maybe a good color for the key is whatever they chose for the shamrock key, unless there's something better. Would anyone be interested?

This is what the attached SVG looks like:

This is how it would look in white-on-green:

Hak Foo:
Personally, I'd say it should be the colon key


The colon isn't a bad idea, but it's clearly less powerful than ESC. Other noteworthy keys are H, J, K, L for navigation, I for insertion, D for deletion, and G for teleportation. However, ESC remains the key to rule all keys.

Definitely dig the white on green.

Someone should tell Haata, he would probably LOVE a key like this.
