"what does a keyboard shortcut?"

Those of you who use Emacs or XEmacs, might know the neat feature of these 
editors: type C-h k then some key combination and you learn out what that key 
combination does in your current context.

I wonder if there would be a way to add such a feature to KDE. Perhaps a less 
interactive one (say, a special tab in the keyboard shortcuts configuration, 
that would allow to type some key combination and would simply display a text 
with the description of what that key does in KDE in general, not in an app 
in special).

Now, I'm willing to get a try at implementing it, but I wonder if anybody has 
hints or advices with respect to where to start and what to look for.

Thanks a lot.

P.S. Excuse the lameness, it's just that I try to gain some time here...
