Yes, they are and sorry I wasn't clear. There is one major way in
which they are platform-dependent and a few minor ways. The major was
is that the menu keybinding take precedence over the ordinary buffer
keybindings when they overlap and under windows this happens a lot
since many keybindings we copied from Emacs and so begin with control,
but under windows the menu shortcut prefix is also control. So things
like "c-x;o" get mapped to "cut; insert an 'o'" under windows and
"switch windows" on the mac (where the menu shortcut is a separate
