Can the keyboard bindings be set from here too? :-)

It would also good to have a commented default config so that people
know more easily how to change the defaults.

I looked into joystick.c and noticed minor stylistic issue.  In the rest of 
the Airstrike code the function definitions are written so that the block
delimiter '{' is on a separate line from the function name & args.

(My own "sin" in this is following linux kernel coding styles i.e. I have 
different indenting value than Ulf + I use braces always.  I've coded too
many years that way.)
