xcode keybindings for emacs emulation
{
/* Keybindings for emacs emulation. Compiled by Jacob Rus.
*
* To use: copy this file to ~/Library/KeyBindings/
* after that any Cocoa applications you launch will inherit these bindings
*
* This is a pretty good set, especially considering that many emacs bindings
* such as C-o, C-a, C-e, C-k, C-y, C-v, C-f, C-b, C-p, C-n, C-t, and
* perhaps a few more, are already built into the system.
*
* BEWARE:
* This file uses the Option key as a meta key. This has the side-effect
* of overriding Mac OS keybindings for the option key, which generally
* make common symbols and non-english letters.
