Yes! Brilliant! It works!
Now testing the other hand...
Wow! Ah- one minor edit for the comma, perhaps? Yeah- it works one way, but not the other... I'm having no problems with it doing stuff I don't want it to do, though, which is awesome....
Anyone reading this: go back up to Shai's post where he talks about half colemak. Do what he says. This is awesome. Basically it does exactly what I described a few posts up. It's always wierd when that happens to me, but hey. Logic is logic.
If my series of posts get annoying to anyone, I'll have to combine them... but I don't want them to lose their sequential effect...
Ok, doing that now...
Before posting this, I posted three other things. I'm combining posts to be less annoying to you guys.

@rubo77: Oh, wow. Hold on. I think the optimal one handed colemak layout would be something a little different.
With slight chording. Don't cringe yet- hear me out.
Leave everything where it is. Dont' touch it. Dont' make it weird.
Add one modifier key. Mirror the keyboard. The modifier? The space key. NOT a dead key, of course, just a modifier.
without space: arstd
with space: oienh
And vise versa. Then it works for everyone. Got both hands? Fine. Use both. Left handed? Right handed? Whatever.
This leaves the problem of '. The solution? space-capslock.
I want to do this, but I don't know how. I don't know how easy it would be to handle keys in such a manner, I don't know how well it would work with people's typing habits, etc.
But if someone makes it possible, I'll test it for them. Shai? What do you think?
You know what? I'll just try it right here.

This is a test of the emergency typing system.
I like it. I'm sorry, but my brain says it's fine, with the exception of being annoyed by the fact that the keys are staggered, of course... But if it can be implemented... I think it would work!

Oh, man. I'm already hooked. Shai, tell us please- is what I proposed even possible? Using space as a modifier? Can it be done?

Oh my gosh! That's what you posted already! Wow! Sorry for my temporary incompetence... We love you, Shai!
