Maybe Nick can give some more detailed words about this.

It's in SVN. However, I changed 'keycode' to 'keybinding' which is more
consistent with the rest of the text. And I removed the double spaces
after full stops you entered. Not sure whether this was on purpose or
by accident but to me it looks ugly and is uncommon, AFAIK.

The rest was just great, many thanks.

Sure, why not. IIRC Frank intended to do something similar some time
ago but never heard of any progress since then. In general,
improvements and fixes are welcome. Just keep in mind, in contrary to
you and Nick, I'm not a native English speaker, so I won't argue
about any verbalization issues with you :).
