I've generally been willing to override bindings that I don't use - with the
exception of the basic cursor movement bindings.  Even though I use the
arrow keys almost exclusively for one-character cursor movement, I've
always been reluctant to reclaim the standard C-f, &c. for other uses for
fear of being at a loss in situations where the arrow keys don't work.
