I'm in the "normal" mode. Preferences>Keyboard>Custom key 
bindings>Insert: press the sequence "Escape a". It becomes 
"Command-Escape Command-A", and the binding "Escape a" is not available 
in the editor. Conversely, one can manually add 'Esc A': '...' in 
.wingide2/preferences's gui.keymap-override dict.

Yes, one of the reasons I kept to XEmacs before finding 
minibuf-electric-gnuemacs for GNU Emacs

About the first one: I guess I'd like bindings per buffer type, but this 
certainly won't happen in 2.1

Careful: don't be too thankful to people giving you still more work :-)
