I merely want to point out that there is a class of users where the
override happens, and to suggest that we should give that group a fair
amount of weight.  They are numerically relatively small, but many are
more or less disabled, and may not have the option to chord (M-f).

I haven't looked at this issue carefully, but the current
implementation in XEmacs looks flexible enough.
