In what way?  I don't think it's hard to change keybindings.  I'd say
it's difficult to completely change the keymap to something
else... but that's only because there's so much functionality, it's
hard to come up with a keymap which covers everything I want, and
does so better than Emacs.  I've done this on other editors, and I
found it easier to learn Emacs's key bindings than to come up with a
set I liked better.

There's room to make key binding customization easier (people have
talked about adding it to custom) but nobody's really come up with a
good interface yet.  What do you think?
