I just noticed there is a GNOME bug for this:
which indicates it is fixed for 2.2.1.  I'm not clear if they mean they've added
the feature, or removed it from the documentation.

I think the feature should be added/included/backported to RedHat 9.  To the
friend who pointed this out to me, being unable to customise his keybindings is
a killer bug (a "workflow" bug, sure, but a killer one), and it is a regression
in the sense he could set custom keybindings in RedHat 7.3.

It was removed from documentation.

I'm not sure why Sun patch is not upstream, ccing Mark
