I'm having trouble with the bind builtin. I'm working on a trivial example 
to bind a shell command to a key sequence. If I type

        bind -x '"abc":/bin/echo def'

I would expect the screen to display "def", but instead I get this error:

        bash2: bash_execute_unix_command: cannot find keymap for command

Granted that this is a trivial example, what am I doing wrong, and how can 
I make it work? The eventual goal is to use bind to map function keys to 

"The only thing that helps me maintain my slender grip on reality is the
friendship I share with my collection of singing potatoes."
