This is why `C-x C-s' seems to me the perfect key for this.

You know, I have been agonizing over these bindings,
switching them back and forward.  Obviously, I would like
to have things like in dired and similar programs.

I don't want to switch `d' to `D', no way.  One of the consistent  
things in the agenda keymap is that caleandar/diary related keys are  
upper case.  `d' and `w' are not negotiable.

With `d' and `w' in place, `m' and `y' are consistent, logical.   
However, I don't believe anyone uses monthly views, I am sure
that no-one uses yearly views, right?  So I will negotiate over
`m', i someone can propose a viable alternative that makes sense.

u and U are free, so this will be good and we should use this.

I strongly hesitate to use "x" for action, because it has
been "exit" for so many years, and because I don't want
anyone to execute this command by accident....
