The use case is following - i want to avoid double pressing
Escape in centerim to close a chat. Therefore i bind Esc to
double Escape (in this specific window). I'm sure other
examples of usage can be found, too.

P.S. Sorry for the Anonymous bug post.

A 'bindkey' command works globally for all of the screen's windows.
A possibility to bindkey only for a specific window should definitely be implemented.
