Disabling hjkl results in a rather nasty and inconvenient surprise when
you fire up the Debian nethack package.  I seem to remember that in
previous versions of nethack enabling the numeric keypad did not disable
the standard movement keys.  Restoring that behaviour would presumably
help both camps cope with the defaults.
