Add in ESC to stop editing an object
Add switching between objects by TAB
With something like this enabled, then single key hotkeys could be used for tool selection.

Please consider contacting to Inkscape/Sodipodi/GIMP developers to work out unified shortcuts for common actions like switching instruments (by one-key shortcut), calling context-sensitive menus (Alt + [A-Z]) etc.

This would be great for overall usability of open source software for creative people dealing with graphics.

I couldn’t agree more. Also please note that we need hotkeys to apply Styles. Quark allows the use of the keypad from the first ”level” (1-2-3, etc. without necessarily using Shift, Alt, Shift-Alt) but InDesign failed on that particular issue, forcing users to use their two hands to access stylesheet shortcuts. It would be great that the whole keypad be made available, along with or without any Shift, Alt, etc. combination.
