       Heh. I carry my .emacs with me on a USB key, along with my
    accumulated library of .els. I can use a few of the native
    keybindings, but I consider it a hardship, to be suffered only until
    I can load my "real" ones. ;-)

Let me be clearer about what I meant. I too customize key bindings, but I
generally stick to the "usual suspects" when it comes to keys. I don't
fiddle with extra keys that my particular keyboard might have. So, I might
have a different binding than vanilla Emacs for `C-z', and I might add a
binding for `S-tab' (unbound in vanilla Emacs), but I don't bind function
key `f11' or `f32'.

(Yes, I realize that some keyboards also don't have `S-tab', so I guess I'm
not a purist - I just wanted to communicate the general problem of getting
too dependent on a particular keyboard.)
