Rotate tool shortkey

Okay, it's too late now to change it, but have you ever considered why the shortcut for the rotate tool is 'e' and not 'r'?

I'm pretty sure they did it just to mess with you, zoharl.

'cos r is for scale

I blame Euler!

so "s" is for scale and "p" is for position??? ouch.

ZBrush has:

q-edit
w-move
e-scale
r-rotate

I just changed Maya to match this.

I just figured it was like the same reason W, A, S, D are to go forward, right, back, and left in a lot of computer games, and why a keyboard doesn't go from A-Z. Better layout, more efficient work, doesn't matter what language.
