This was possible before, using XMonad.Actions.Submap.
As Brent said, he just wrote keybindings parser (i.e. introduced
convenient emacs-style syntax).

BTW, last night on IRC I saw several emacs users discussing
impossibility of redefining keys in vi (I guess that discussion was
related to this patch).
I had no time to response then, but yes, in Vim (current de-facto
standard implementation of vi) user can (re-)define keybindings,
including even different bindings for different modes.
