Can we get a keyboard shortcut for adding favorites?
I use the j/k and m keyboard shortcuts
all the time, but when I want to favorite a post or comment, I need to reach for the mouse. This will not do!

I suggest "a" and/or "+" for adding favorites, avoiding "f" to avoid confusion with "flag" (Though I'm not sure a "flag" shortcut makes much sense since flagging is surely less common than favoriting for most people.)
I know that adding favorites requires an HTTP request to the server, whereas scrolling is an entirely client-side operation, and I'm not sure how the current code would cope with a user who's manually scrolled the page after using j/k keyboard navigation, but I still want my pony.
