Workman is a keyboard layout optimized for horizontal and vertical finger stretching. It accounts for wrist movement to the middle columns and the reaching and folding preferences of each finger.

Guidelines for the design:

 * Prioritize the home keys
 * If vertical folding and reaching cannot be prevented, prioritize reaching for longer fingers and folding for shorter fingers.
 * Place more frequent keys under stronger fingers
 * Common bigrams should be easy to type.
