Keybinding Schemes

Owner: ???

Effort: ???

Dependencies: ???

Abstract: We need a standard mechanism that allows a different global key binding schemes to be defined. Ideally, this would be the keyboard action interface that I have proposed, however this would require a lot of work on the part of mode maintainers and other external Elisp packages and will not be rady in the short term. So I propose a very kludgy interface, along the lines of what is done in Viper currently. Perhaps we can rip that key munging code out of Viper and make a separate extension that implements a global key binding scheme munging feature. This way a key binding scheme could rearrange all the default keys and have all sorts of other code, which depends on the standard keys being in their default location, still work.
