Something like that... In the normal DrRacket key bindings, you get 
equivalents to these Emacs ones:

(global-set-key [(meta left)]      'backward-sexp)
(global-set-key [(meta right)]     'forward-sexp)
(global-set-key [(meta up)]        'backward-up-list)
(global-set-key [(meta down)]      'down-list)

Two ones that DrRacket doesn't have yet:

(global-set-key [(meta backspace)] 'backward-kill-sexp)
(global-set-key [(meta delete)]    'kill-sexp)

I don't think that any of these are standard in Emacs yet, by the way.  
I blocked them several years ago, but never got around to putting them 
in Quack or submitting them to core Emacs.
