unfortunatly what you want to do cant be done :( 

The current :bind syntax is as follows

bind [^]KeySym free form command text

the ^ is optional, and you will find the keysym names by looking at
the X headers (xkeysym.h?) or running xmodmap -pke from the shell.

Any key that you bind must still be prefixed by the escape char (C-t
by default).

One day, we will be able to bind arbitrary keys to commands without
having to go through the prefix key.  But it comes up rarely enough
though that its not really a high priority, prefix maps are really
where it is at.
