    Old ladies don't write macros or scripts to do such
    things. We've got a solution, we're implementing it. I
    thought you wanted to know something about how you, a
    seemingly capable developer, could do such thing from
    within the AbiWord codebase or from a scripting
    language. Apparently not.

    If you want to associate keypress combos with macros,
    please write up a framework to do so. Harassing
    developers won't get you anywhere.
