Hmm... I hadn't noticed it but yes, backspace *will* select the parent
node (backspace, not the left arrow). The default gtk behaviour is for
it not to collapse the node. 
Anyways, I've enabled support for the right and left arrow and the
return key, now at CVS.  

Xffm keyboard shortcuts:
immediate action:
 delete = remove
 insert = new (file or directory)
 right arrow = go up
 left arrow = double click
 return = double click (yes, same action as left arrow)

control keys, imply action:
 ctrl-insert = double click
 ctrl-X Cut(gtk default)
 ctrl-C Copy(gtk default)
 ctrl-V Paste(gtk default)
 ctrl-L (List pasteboard)
 ctrl-K (Klear or Kaput pasteboard)
 ctrl-Q (Quit)
 ctrl-F (Find)
 ctrl-E (Execute)
 ctrl-home (go home)
 ctrl-left (go back)
 ctrl-right (go forward)
 ctrl-down (go to)
 ctrl-up (go up)
 ctrl-P (print)
 ctrl-M (modify or touch)
 ctrl-S (symlink creation)
 ctrl-D (duplicate)
 ctrl-R (rename)
 ctrl-Y (disk yusage)
 ctrl-Z (refresh)
 ctrl-T (terminal)
 ctrl-N (new xffm window)
 ctrl-O (Open with)

and the ALT keys, to modify the view or xffm configuration:
 alt-left shrink icon
 alt-right grow icon
 alt-S (Size column toggle)
 alt-D (Date column toggle)
 alt-G (Group column toggle)
 alt-U (Uid column toggle)
 alt-M (Mode column toggle)
 alt-C (Copy on drag toggle)
 alt-H (Hidden files toggle)
 alt-F (Filetype subsorting toggle)
 alt-I (Image autopreview toggle)
 alt-K (Monitor toggle)
 alt-N (Names abbreviation toggle)
 alt-R (Rsh instead of ssh toggle)
 alt-X (Scp instead of rsync toggle
 alt-T (Trash collection toggle)
 alt-W (Wastebasket showing toggle)

and finally the "be careful" actions:
 ctrl-alt-S (scramble) 
 ctrl-alt-U (unscramble)

Answering another question: 
Keyboard shortcuts can be customizable (as in xftree): you can open a
menu, highlight an entry and press a keyboard key to create the
shortcut. It but it should work. To save such configured shortcuts from
session to session, a patch would be welcome.
