For me, the Auto-Optimize step (in particular the Unjaggy and De-bumpify optimizations) actually removes some hand-placed vias - particularly those which I've placed up against an SMT pad as part of hand-routing the majority of the board.  I only noticed this today, but I can't be sure when that behavior started.

As for keys, I would like to see a default hotkey added to turn Orthogonal Moves on/off (I toggle this setting quite frequently while cleaning up after the autorouter).
