Wait, Craig; are you saying that it *is* possible if I edit gconf?

Currently no. I was wondering if it might be possible to work around that. But, a little testing has shown that the delete key is bound by GTK such that it can remove any existing accelerator from a menu item. A very useful feature if you have set /desktop/gnome/interface/can_change_accels to true and accidentally set an item.

At this point, I don't care at all what happens by default when I press the Delete key; I just want to be able to map the Delete key to "Move to trash"--frankly, I don't mind if I have to go a roundabout way to do it either.

At the moment, I think you're stuck with patching the source code or getting used to using 'D'. However, Peter has suggested another option which I'll respond to separately.
