Add support for custom keyboard bindings at the OS level.

Hi, I just tried the trial version.  I've customized my Mac OS keybindings so that ctrl+arrows moves backward and forward a word, just like in Windows.  (To do this, I edited ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict.)  Textastic doesn't respect my customizations, which means I can't navigate text with the keyboard the way I usually do.

Otherwise, it seems like a great program.

Hrmm, actually Textastic does use the standard mechanisms for text entry on Mac OS X. It doesn't set any custom keyboard bindings for cursor movements but implements the standard text entry interfaces.

In this case, Textastic implements the methods "moveWordBackward:" and "moveWordForward:" which are called by the operating system automatically when the appropriate keyboard shortcut is pressed.

(The standard key binding for moving forward or backward a word is alt-arrows.)
