[svlug] EMACS keybindings in KDE?

When a user first logs into KDE, it takes you through a wizard (which I 
unfortunately can't recall the name of) that lets you (among other 
things) choose the key emulation that KDE will use.  I don't recall if 
emacs emulation is one of the options, but if it is I'm guessing that's 
where you'd set it.

Sorry for the faulty memory.  Perhaps someone else can chime in with the 
app name.
