I'm going to try that.  For right now I use the Emacs GTK key theme:

My .gtkrc-2.0:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
gtk-font-name = "Dejavu Serif 10"
gtk-theme-name = "MurrinaNeoGraphite"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "Tango"
gtk-key-theme-name = "Emacs"
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

This works to get some key bindings, like C-k and sometimes C-h will
delete.  However, it will not accept prefixes, so C-x k will not
work.  Konqueror has a customizable keybinding menu, but it also does
not accept prefixes.
