Yeah, I've figured that much after finding that option in preferences.

I don't think using d: explicitly is a good idea. If you're a mac user
with command *not* set to be meta, you're probably already using
semi-habitually d:s for Save, d:r for Run, not to mention all the other
nice key combinations with d:.

I actually think providing esc; key bindings here only makes it closer
to Emacs, where this works exactly as meta. It is also consistent with
default DrRacket key bindings.
