and needs to somehow go thru the keymap
to present the correct hotkey, including all
current user config settings, like which mouse
button does what. Gone are the days when
a static page sufficed.

Subject: Re: [Bf-committers] spacebar and hotkeys

This has been mentioned a couple of times before, but anyway - Most of  
these things mentioned are still on the todo to be re-implemented  
properly. The toolbox will come back, but it needs some more design  
and coding to determine exactly in what form. Currently the focus is  
on stabilising what's in 2.5 right now, rather than adding new things.  
Once it's settled down a bit, we can then continue with adding new  

The 'hotkey reference' script wasn't removed, it's just hasn't been  
implemented to begin with in 2.5. And it probably may not need to be  
either, all hotkeys are shown next to their associated menu items, in  
tooltips of operator buttons, and in the operator search menu.
