I'm sure it can. However, it sounds like such reconfiguration is
needed. Many users will be unable or unwilling to reconfigure, and of
course reconfiguration breaks the documentation (almost surely, Emacs
users are of course used to docs that know the current bindings, but
hardcopy and almost all online docs from Paleolithic-emulation
Still, if XEmacs matters more to the user than the WM does (and I
would hope so! :-) they might be willing to change. Would you be
willing to post the configuration you use, and we can add it to the
FAQ? Also, the commands to do so (presumably easily accessible from
the menu, but let's remove all excuses).
If it's not an obvious linear mapping (eg, Meta->Hyper), I'd also like
somebody (not necessarily Wulf :-) to document the defaults.
If somebody has done the same for other WMs (I guess GNOME's default
is still Metacity?), that information would also be appreciated.
