They're pretty minor, but although binding C-g works in a given
keymap, funny things happen in keymaps that inherit from it. So the
GNU implementation makes it easy to rebind keys that almost nobody
needs to rebind, but then a few corner cases don't work. AFAIK the
XEmacs keymaps work as documented.

OK, well, if we can do something to help with that, let us know!
