2. It would be great if the documentation either listed the default
keybinding for each command in the command index, or listed the command name
for each keybinding in the default key bindings page.
Try 'C-t ?' I think this dumps what you want.
OK, thanks.  This looks like it's a static description of the default
bindings.  Can I copy&paste it?

I don't think so. The man page also has the (default) list of
bindings, as does the wiki.

To dump the default keybindings to the terminal, run ratpoison -c help

3. I decided that rather than the C-t prefix I'd use one of the
otherwise-useless extra modifier keys.  I chose the one to the right of
keyboard with a menu symbol on it.  I set this up by putting this in my

keycode 117 = Hyper_R
add Mod3 = Hyper_R

Then I had to replicate all of the existing root-keymap bindings in a new
top-keymap with the H- modifier.  It would be been great if I could have
dumped the existing keybindings, and piped them through sed or awk, to do
this.  But doing it by hand was a good way to discover all the commands I
suppose.  Anyway, pressing e.g. Hyper-0 seems a lot simpler than C-t 0,
especially on this cramped keyboard.
I believe there's a simpler way to change C-t to something else.
You can change C-t to another key, but I think it still has to be a prefix
that you press-and-release before the command key; you can't change to a
modifier key which you hold down with the command key, as I understand it.

Ah, that's harder. Although it might be in the wiki, too.
To change it to C-space, add:
escape C-space

6. Totally off-topic: if anyone knows how to change the font size that
Firefox uses for its menu bar and status bar, or better still how to get
of the menu bar entirely, I'd love to hear from you!  All those wasted

The problem here is your gtk2 theme, you need to install gtkchtheme, and use it to change the font size.

Hope that all helps,
