Thanks, Havoc -- I just saw the gnome-2-0-list has the description of
"Deprecated list, use desktop-devel-list", so that's where I went.  I've
replied to gnome-list gnome org this time around.

Basically, it's just the "Run command X with the key sequence that
you're about to grab" functionality that I'm missing.  That and the
"maximise window vertically toggle" of sawfish.

Personally, I'd prefer to not have to take my hands off the keyboard to
open up a new terminal (although I could go the long route and do an
Alt-F2 and get it that way).  Just call me lazy, I suppose but it's just
something I can't live without.

Thanks for pointing me to gconf-editor.  I'll have to play with it more
tomorrow, but I've tried modifying some of the global_keybindings where
the name is "run_command_X", but it's not immediately clear how to
assign commands to a series of key sequences.  Is it quite obvious or is
it that I'm just too tired to see it?

Thanks again for the reply,
