I guess I could try that. But it does seems like a lot of time to get used to that. I mean, learning how to use C-n, C-f, etc... instead of using the arrows took quite some time.

Lets say I want to keep the bindings at their current positions, how would I go about that? Would I have to remap all bindings? I guess I could check before each command is executed, what the command was. If it was a self-insert-command I would do nothing. Otherwise I would translate the binding to the dvorak layout, and the run the function. This would result in that the regular typing will be the dvorak way, but all other function calls would be mapped against qwerty. I guess no one has such code lying around? ;)

I am a happy dvorak user myself and what I did was just use the new keybindings (like C-p becoming C-l)
At first, you may think the bindings aren't really usable, but you will get used to it quite easily.
Well, you'll have to use two hands to save a file or quit emacs, but if you use dvorak (or svorak), I guess you keep your two hands on the keyboard, so it shouldn't be that much of a problem.

So I suggest you give a chance to default bindings after switching X to Svorak.
