I wanted such a feature for long. It works nicely.

Here are my suggestions:

* Let the user add his own key bindings. Remove your line from
  roster.scm. Add them to default generated ~/.freetalk/freetalk.scm
  and comment them out.

* (ft-bind-key 8 "(/who 0)") 
  should be 
  (ft-bind-key 8 "(/who \"\")")

* Add documentation in freetalk.texi

* It will be nice to accept other prefixes too other than just C-. But
  this is better than having nothing.

* (ft-bind-to-ctrl-key #\h "SCM-CODE")
  is more readable.

BTW, Vikas will upload jingle version today for testing. He will also
update repository access details on the web site. Les us continue to
maintain loudmouth version till jingle version becomes stable. But
mostly bug fixes and minor tweaks.
