Re: Easy keybinding

    Gtk applications allow keybindings by selecting a menu item with the
    mouse, then hitting a key.  So if you select the File/Open item with
    the mouse and then press the x key, then you have bound x to the
    command which invokes File/Open.

What does the user do, physically, to "select" a menu item with the
mouse but not actually invoke it?

We could probably make an Emacs command easily enough that makes a key
binding by copying another key binding.  The second key sequence could
be a menu item.  That would not be the exact same interface but it
would provide the same feature and it would fit Emacs better.  Is that
good enough?

What I would really like is to integrate customization of key bindings
in to Custom.
