Good lord, no, I didn't know about that! Yet another piece of incredibly 
useful functionality, completely nonobvious :-)

What would be (moderately, definitely not trivially, for Alan) easy to 
implement, would be the ability to dump, to XHTML, _all_
current bindings, tab completions, etc.

Doing a good GUI to these bindings is very difficult, but allowing TM to 
dump a file describing them is
less difficult. The file should describe:
1) The command
2) Where the binding originates.
3) What you need to do to change it.
