(I always do that, and I'm picky enough with my keyboards that it
takes much less than a missing left-side Alt key to make me deposit it
in the nearest garbage bin.)

And for that, I have my Emacs set with just Alt for all
expression-related things, including movement (Alt-left and -right).
Still using two hands.  (And had I been using paredit, I'd make it do
just that, and/or complain that it should use the more modern "bind
<the key that is currently bound to X> to Y".)
