Please specify in this bug what this means.

I implemented bug 437640 which adds support for disabling and removing keysets, but it was backed out due to some leaks which I couldn't figure out how to debug.

The intent of this bug is to provide keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys) for commonly
used tasks mainly for non-touchscreen devices. E.g. the action "scroll to
bottom of page" could be longpress+8. 

I just made it a blocker for bug 441794 as they probably should be implemented
by the same person. 

Are long keys implemented yet? We should be able to do <key modifier="long"/>

What is a long key?
One that you press and hold, presumably.
What Christian calls a longpress key. I'm not dogmatic about them; it seems to me that most devices that are capable of running a real browser have a full (if tiny) keyboard.

I wish that was true but there are lots of e.g. Windows Mobile Standard devices with only numeric + navigation keys. 

Also, I was just using longpress as one example. We should also support just pressing one key e.g. "9" or potentially even pressing e.g. "9" twice in succession.

just for clarification, this bug is meant to be for defining the keyboard shortcuts and implementing them
On the N810 there are two +/- buttons on the top of the device.  In microb they are mapped to zoom in and zoom out and they probably should be in fennec as well.  Would help the zoom experience quite a bit given there's no obvious way to zoom out right now.
Also, we need to unify the shortcut for dismissing a UI panel, such as the bookmarks list or history or the shortcut editor. Currently some of them have a shortcut and some don't.

Did something get checked in for this bug?  This is resolved, but I don't know how to verify it.
