Greeting, Developers! 
I, Peter A. Kerzum, hereby require fully configurable keyboard shortcuts  
to be finally implemented in future versions of mc =) Well, I use mc quite  
a lot as an IDE, and I like it, especially 2 features: 
- mc works well on text terminals and 
- for its intuitive nature, for perfect editor with support for C-Shift-left  
well, I believe, most mc users honour these features and they are the most  
important design decisions - correct me if I'm wrong. We need to understand 
that hardcoded keybindings are the main trouble in search of improvement 
these needful qualities, I guess you thought of it. 
Consider a number of reasons: 
- mc is often run on remote terminals which are often poor 
  * there are editors comands like C-Shift-left that cannot be performed 
        on such terminals at all 
  * this is frequently done by people not familiar with UNIX, neither with 
        ESC-digit sequences, who choose mc as their first step of this acquaintance  
- different needs require different text operations well configured, but editors  
        choice of commands is misleading - some M-letter combinations are  
        builtin while others are free for       macros. 
- most people have 3 dedicated buttons between M and C and they'd like 
        to use them for whatever they do, the same about keypad 
- some people have different idea of what intuitive is 
It would be really nice if comands be associated not only with key-codes  
(as is the case with learn keys) but with sequences of codes. This way we 
could use multikey sequences and provide stuff like 'emacs C-x command 
 set config' or 'M-alphanumeric comand set'. You know what I mean =)
