Already done, and X has everything prepared for me.

OK....so...how is KHotKeys run ? I don't see such a binary on my box. I
can see the binary 'khotkeys' running - surely there is a GUI that'll
collect them for me ? Or even a config file I can edit somewhere ?
Aha. strace says it loads a /home/looney/.kde/share/config/khotkeysrc
file. Hmm. Good thing KDE is so easy to configure!
