pressing +jump / +crouch while in liquid should act as +moveup / +movedown

I always wondered why it is so difficult to get out of water/lava/slime in Xonotic. If you bind a key to moveup andmovedown, it makes a HUGE difference compared to using jump andcrouch, it will move at the same speed as other movement keys (*forward,*moveleft, etc.) rather than very slowly when using jump/+crouch. Even tho in the INPUT menu it is specified “Jump / swim” and “Crouch / sink”, it is a little strange that there are unbound actions that work specifically for swimming up/down that do a much better job. Give it a try, bind buttons formoveup and movedown then go into water, try jump/crouch and then moveup/movedown, the difference is light and day. Is it possible forjump and +crouch to swim at that speed rather than having to bind 2 more buttons?
