No problems here, except that I specifically don't want the shortcuts
for the GUI buttons. At least not in the core, or at least not switched
on by default; I don't favor overriding a browser's access key settings.
Besides, it's better to educate people to learn wiki markup instead of
learning access keys. (Well, that's almost certainly just me *gg*)
Anyway: I wouldn't want to see that in the core, and if it must go into
the core, I wouldn't want to see that switched on by default.

Maybe have a single "Save" button and two check boxes after that:
1) "This is a minor edit" (it should remain a checkbox - I tend to start
a minor edit and activate that minor edit setting so that I don't forget
to check it when I'm done with it, or after previewing my changes)
2) "Continue editing after save".
