Well, the right solution would, then, be to have tutorial talk about key
bindings that are determined dynamically, so they match whatever works
in a particular Emacs installation. Which is a problem ATM, because,
IIRC, there is no way to specify which key binding is a "preferred" one
for a given command -- and it seems that "dynamic tutorial" would need
to know this.

We might even have a special, human-adapted versions of the tutorial for
things which are vastly different than normal, like viper and maybe also

But that is after the release, I suppose. For now, maybe Lennart's
suggestion is good enough?

Make backups before you try something new or interesting or experimental
or radical or if the day has a "y" in it.
