Hello there turtle.

Yes, the key binding example you provide with nano should be doable
with the new code in CVS.  The idea is as you mention, to do the
keybindings in your .nanorc file.  The code is not 100% stable yet
but if you (or anyone else) is interested in trying it our early, let me
know and I will put up a prerelease tar.gz file on the web site. 

I'm not sure I understand your request about mouse key functionality.
Normally enabling mouse mode is so you can copy or cut text into
nano's internal buffer, which is separate from the x clipboard.  If you want
to use the x clipboard's buffer, why are you turning on nano's mouse mode?
Just to be able to move the cursor by clicking?  I'm confused.

Hi there first time posting here nano is my first and favorite text editor.
I am no developer but svn is the way to go.
1) I am interested in making nano keys similar to other linux app key
like with nano.h:
#define NANO_WHEREIS_KEY                NANO_CONTROL_F

#define NANO_CUT_KEY                    NANO_CONTROL_X
#define NANO_COPY_KEY                   NANO_CONTROL_C
#define NANO_UNCUT_KEY                  NANO_CONTROL_V
but browser complains...
Are all of you working on having all the keys be user configurable file?
One Idea might be to have a few pre selectable key bindings in nanorc or the
option to make your own.

2) I am interested in x-clipbord mouse copy and paste selection functionality
with mouse support enabled.
Where middle click or (both buttons on a laptop) pastes the contents of the x
clipbord. It works with it off but not on.
