[svlug] EMACS keybindings in KDE?

I've recently been giving KDE a try. The one thing, however, that is
driving me crazy is that it uses "windows key bindings". I know that
gnome recently broke and started using them, but found a way to fix

My fingers are used to emacs key bindings. Ctrl-A is supposed to go to
the beginning of the line, not select everything. My brain just can't
shift keybindings depending on whether I'm at the shell prompt,
editing a document, or trying to type a URL.  

I've been trying to find out how to fix the broken keybindings in KDE,
but all I can seem to find is people complaining about the same thing,
or directions on how to change them in GTK. Does anyone here know how
to change them?

Software that holds your hand is one thing, software that holds your
hand and won't let go is really, really annoying.
