Yes, that's what I'm saying.

It would be awfully confusing if the key bindings were constantly 
changing, wouldn't it :)  It was more of a thought to chew on than 
anything; the way things are now is working fine, so there's no real 
pressing need to change it.

An automagically run migration script would definitely be useful, but 
upon further reflection it seems like some sort of notification to the 
user is most important.  Hoping they figure out they have to check the 
key binding editor (assuming they're aware such a thing exists) seems 
like a bit shaky of a solution :)
