Description

I check in the widget code for bug 41305 so it will now send correct charcode 
for key press if 
people hit control d (r=jfrancis). Open this bug and assign to sfraser so he can 
add new keybinding for control key on Mac.

Um, what control key binding do we need on Mac? I don't understand.

Frank said that you and he looked at Mac 4.x and discovered that ^D did
forward-delete-character.  Kathy had filed a bug specifically mentioning ^D, so
maybe she was missing it (cc'ing her even though she shouldn't be reading
bugzilla mail now :-).

I think 4.x simply passed control-char combinations onto the underlying native 
text widgets, which means that various control chars will have wacky effects (^H 
= backspace, ^D = forward delete etc). I don't think we need to emulate all of 
these.

Reopening -- this is trivial (just two lines of XBL, which are already written
for Unix), so why not support them if other Mac apps do?

I'll do it if Simon doesn't want to.  In fact, Windows supported these bindings
too, so I may just move them out of Unix into the XP bindings.
