Excellent, it works! Thanks so much Tim.
I'll repost the code here for anyone else who is interested in this kind
of thing (a common scenario among Vim users is to map "jj" to the ESC
; make "jk" behave as ESC key
(defun viper-escape-if-next-char (c)
"Watches the next letter. If c, then switch to viper mode, otherwise insert a j and forward unpressed key to unread-command-events"
(let ((next-key (read-event)))
(if (= c next-key)
(setq unread-command-events (list next-key)))))
(defun viper-escape-if-next-char-is-k (arg)
(if (= arg 1)
(define-key viper-insert-basic-map (kbd "j") 'viper-escape-if-next-char-is-k)
