No "." or "E/-"

Playing around with this layout, and watching other people play around with it, I realized that fingers had to move all over the screen to tap out the numbers.  That made me change the layout to the following:

(I had one crazy idea: scrap the keypad entirely, and just show a pile of numbers at the bottom of the screen and let people flick numbers up in order…)
