Ask @hazelnut53:

Suppose that instead of an easy to memorize keyboard layout like 1234 (Space) 7890, I use something like qerv (Space) y780. In the long term, does having an unintuitive key layout have an effect, or muscle memory takes care of that so there is no difference?

It doesn't really have an effect at the end after you get used to whatever layout you started with. I still prefer linear layout because it's easier to start with and the there's not a big gap between the keys so it's not uncomfortable while playing.
