On my Swedish keyboard it's on par with [[ which suffers because you need
to use AltGr. For '/.' the '/' is on Shift-7, whereas '.' is down to

when you are using the same hand for both symbols).
IIRC, it's in general faster if you can alternate hands when typing,
because then the other hand starts preparing during the motion of the
Oh, wait... I shouldn't compare this to '[[' but to '[:'.. well, it's much
easier to type compared to '[:'. The latter combines the drawbacks off '['
(needs AltGr) and '/.' (same hand, two very different locations).
