Is you mean moving mc.wrapper.csh|sh from /usr/share/mc into
/usr/libexec/mc ?

MC reads old configs as well (as possible) and transforms into new format.
If this not right: create new ticket, please.

Well... someone have profit at this point, someone annoying by visual
effects... Skins (and filehighlight) was very easy for implement. Much
harder(and much important) for implement was 'keymaps' technology - it's
an 'invisible' work for end user (like iceberg) and at present time this
technology incomplete.

We have lot of new ideas about mc (such as config dialog like
'about:config' from Firefox/Seamonkey). But we don't have time to
realize all ideas :(. In any case, patches always welcome. ;)

Now implemented user-side keybinds. If something don't work - create
ticket, please.

I think, implement these keybinds not hard... but this task not for
4.7.0 milestone.
