I've been working on this for a while now. I'd like to produce a .emacs file that will completely remap the keybindings to some kind of standard.

The biggest problem seems to be the ctrl-x and ctrl-c behavior.

To those in the emacs community who say that the default behavior is superior, I won't disagree. But ctrl-f is search in my browser, and whenever I hit ctrl-s to search, it tries to save the web page. So I figured I needed to retrain myself and emacs to a single standard.
