Nope :).  Look at http://www.smalltalkhub.com/mc/Guille/Keymappings/main,
in Keymapping-Morphic, KMWindowsKeymaps class>>buildGlobalKeymappingsOn:.
The last line:

    aBuilder attachShortcutCategory: #Window to: SystemWindow.

Those are static keybindings, and they were the first ones. I think I have
to spend some hours in providing examples...

I'll integrate them again.  Ben, somehow the dettach* methods dissapeared
from KMDispatcher in latest 2.0 :/. I'll have a look and integrate all of
them in latest Keymapping version.

> * a way to detach individual shortcuts

You mean removing a shortcut from a category? Or to ban a shortcut from a
morph? Because here, I will be a bit strict with the nomenclature so we
understand each other :) :

- Static category keymappings: you attach a category to a class. ( The one
in the example above )
- Dynamic category keymappings: you attach dinamically a category to an
object. (the one you've used so far)
- Dynamic object keymappings: you attach a single shortcut to an object,
sending the #on:do: message

So, were you using the third one? Removing a keymap from a category, which
removes it from all the objects who use it, is easy but removing just for
one object is not there, because the keymaps are looked up in the
configuration, not flattened on the object.
