Any simple way to link the "+" and "-" (Step Forward and Step Backward) 
buttons in a discrete (or even continuous) Manipulation to the Right 
Arrow and Left Arrow keys on your keyboard?

[These arrow keys are so ubiquitous on standard keyboards, and using 
them for forward and backward stepping is so ubiquitous in so many other 
applications, that I'm a bit surprised this isn't the default behavior 
for Manipulate.]
