From discussion in #496, I think I'd like to take a crack at making the qt console key bindings configurable. Of course, if anyone else wants to do it, that would be great too!

It seems to me the right way to do this is to wait for #492 to get merged (almost ready). At that point, the Qt console will have a proper config file support, and it will be much easier to experiment.

This is, for example, the format used by LyX:

\bind "C-e" "line-end"
\bind "C-a" "line-begin"
\bind "C-d" "char-delete-forward"
\bind "C-i" "font-emph"
\bind "C-S-t" "buffer-update pdf2"

which follows how Emacs describes keybindings as well.

I don't think the \bind syntax looks particularly nice, but the key descriptions seem fine, and it's just a matter for us of sorting out how to describe actions.
