Re: [jasspa] Modifying key bindings
- I know it is a sad thing, I keep on C-a and C-e everywhere with some
disastrous results (C-e in mysqlcc is "execute SQL"), but if you can't

See prefix(2) in the on-line help.
It will certainly de-emacs the system.
To do this properly then the key bindings should
be set up as an emulation mode.
You might have a few problems with some of
If you succeed then I know that there will
be a few other people that would be interested
in your results. For myself I type Emacs
commands into Windows apps with disasterous
effects - wish Windows would support
Emacs key bindings not the other way around.
If you progress to a point that it is feasible
then you may need a little more help in trying
to remove bindings made in the macros. We will
need to consider how to address this issue in
some more depth.

- I would not find this useful. IMO, ME is the wrong tool for this. I
would use 'rsync' and 'cron' to set up a mirroring strategy, instead.
In fact this is what I'm going to implement very shortly to prevent the
problem I had when my Windows hung and ME wrote my file with zero length
the other day. (N.b. I don't necessarily need my files saved
up-to-the-minute; it's enough to have them up-to-the-day.)
