Keyboard interaction for reorderer

In doing some testing what I believe happened is that the functions of  
the arrow keys were slightly changed. There was a bug about this  

Now the keys work exclusively for their direction. This is most  
evident in the sortable jQuery tab and vertical sortable list demos.

The context I was referring to in my previous e-mail was the lightbox.  
I'm assuming that at the left end of the row, pushing left will wrap  
the right side of the next row.
