I'm pretty sure there's a gconf/dconf key somewhere to enable the customisable keys.

You can see how customisable keys could confuse a normal user if they did it by accident though.

At least improvements are happening to gtk (if slowly for lack of manpower) .. for instance gtk3 makes drawing a lot simpler (a lot more based around cairo) - changes like this are important as it should be quicker to make apps.

Toolkits etc do need to refreshed from time to time or they become unmanageable, 10 years or so was pretty good for gtk2, gtk3 is only just getting started.
