The steering controls completely ignore your throttle setting and force it to 100%, which means you can't, say, turn your ship while stationary, or make a turn at half speed. People don't always fly at full throttle!

It will set your throttle to full speed if you are stopped but does not change your speed if you are already moving. We can't do turning on the spot because your ship only has forward velocity and no facing direction.

You could have it just bump the ship up to a couple of meters per second, then let it coast back to zero.

This seems like the obvious and ideal solution to me if we can't turn without staying at 0 m/s. It's effectively the same as double-clicking somewhere and then immediately pressing ctrl+space.
