an idea for gnome

I have a meta key, as do many other people. Stealing from the mac, I want to use the meta key for application-level operations (meta-s to save, meta-q to quit) so I get my ctrl key back for Emacs-style keybindings.

I've looked into just doing this a few times but I think I'd need to recompile/LD_PRELOAD GTK to override the stock accelerators. So maybe I'll just post it here... if somebody else implements it, I'll be happy too.
