Weal or wheel? Anyway, I suppose it depends on what level you want to change 
this. Changing key mappings on a global basis is arguably too disruptive for 
something that may only be needed for a few specialised applications, but for 
console-related stuff, you should be able to use the loadkeys, dumpkeys and 
showkeys commands for this purpose:

I've done this on my NanoNote, but I don't remember exactly which commands I 
used or what I changed, but it is possible.
