Why not??! As a user, I would very much welcome an emacs-style
interface. Ctrl-H a  (apropos) would logically do what is being
discussed here. Ctrl-H c to describe the command associated with a key
would be excellent as well. Those commands run lightning-fast in emacs
compared with the snail-like workings of the gimp/gtk. But whatever
you do, please, please, PLEASE do not do as one poster suggested and
eliminate single-keystroke commands!! The ability to assign your own
keys to gimp commands on the fly is one of its shining features, IMHO.
