Is it?  One of the main reasons I use bash over *insert name of ancient
shell here* is because it reduces the number of keystokes via use of the
tab key. :)

Hmm, yeah. Considering that in Xara, I simply cannot use keyboard for
many tasks that I routinely use it for in Inkscape (including such
basic tasks as scrolling canvas, scaling/rotating objects, or
adjusting kerning/letterspacing), I guess that my average Inkscape
session has rather more keystrokes (but fewer "mousestrokes") per
minute than in Xara.

Whether it's an advantage of Xara is another question, of course...

Inkscape. Draw Freely.
