This patch is applied in tonight's 0.16.4+ development snapshot:
http://armedbear.org/j.zip (source and documentation)
http://armedbear.org/j-jar.zip (just j.jar)
It seems to work fine on Linux.
The easiest way to play around with this is to put an ad hoc mapping
or two in ~/.j/init.bsh, e.g.:
globalMapKey("Meta I", "inbox");
mapKeyForMode("Meta E", "p4edit", "Java");
You'll need to restart j to pick up your changes after editing
init.bsh (evalBuffer might work too, but restarting j is more
reliable if you have anything else in there).
