If you want some kind of `undo' for bindings, then it would seem reasonable
to save the current set of bindings output by `bind -p' (possibly also
specifying a keymap) to a file, edit it to the form you want, then use
`bind -f' to restore that set of key bindings from the file if you want to
roll back from an experiment.
