There isn't documentation about the internals of the MD command system.
In any case, I think it's not overly difficult to implement. The class
CommandManager holds a list of all commands registered in MD. Here are
some hints:

* Add support in MonoDevelop.Core.Gui.CommandService for reading/writing
key bindings from/to an xml file. This file would store
command_id/accelerator pairs.
* Create a dialog that shows a list of all commands and allows selecting
one an change the accelerator. After changing the accelerators, the new
accelerator configuration would be saved to a file in
* The key bindings config file would only include accelerators which are
different from the default. You'll need to add a new property to Command
to hold the default accelerator (loaded when the command is created).
* It would be nice to allow selecting between several stock key binding
configurations. For example Visual Studio, Eclipse, etc. We would have a
file for every configuration.

I hope that helps.
