What really needs to be done is the ability to bind toplevel keys
arbitrarily (I did promise to implement this at some point).  And that
includes being able to make arbitrary keys be prefix keys.

The last time we really discussed it, we spent a lot of time trying to
figure out what the :bind syntax would look like.  I think we came to
a conclusion, but I forget what it was, and I think that was before
irc was logged.  One day I will implement this, unless someone else
does first.
