Details

The changes in bug 282097 added basic support for user key bindings at the OS level.

Cocoa's text system supports multi-keystroke bindings in this file, while Gecko currently ignores those.

For example, you could define that "ESC, n" maps to moveDown:, or any of the other selectors available.

This is definitely an advanced user feature because there are no default OS bindings with multiple keystrokes.  However, it's a nice thing to consider for parity with other Cocoa text editors.
