If you strongly feel that AbiWord needs Tcl support
on top of the existing Perl and Python support, please
file an RFE. That doens't mean anybody will implement
it any time now but somebody might.

No it doesn't. You should file an RFE to get APIs
added/exported to trap arbitrary keypresses by
scripting interface. It should be doable if somebody
has the interest and the time to add it.
