Really, we want people to use Inkscape as Inkscape, not to encourage
their use of a crutch. Same thing with the menus XML file.
Speaking as the person who implemented the keybindings feature, the plan
was to have a UI all along; I've just not had time to do so.
It's worth nothing that configurable keybindings aren't just for aping
the bindings of other applications, they're also useful for creating
keybindings optimized for a particular working style. John Bintz, for
instance, has a set of keybindings optimized for the set of features he
uses for illustration (see share/keys/right-handed-illustration.xml).
