Perhaps, like style sheets or themes present a user selectable _look_,
you could set up something that would allow the user to select a _feel_.

Of course, there are a lot of bindings that are specific to the modes,
and we can't expect all modes to provide the same sets of binding

But for the global and packages modes, you could have hemlock-classic
and emacs-like binding sets and allow for other user-defined binding

binding sets?
binding themes?
binding schemes?
binding variants?
