Is there an application for customizing mouse-keys, specifically choosing which keys to use?

I don't have a numpad so I can't use the built-in mouse-keys.

The predefined settings in KeyRemap4MacBook aren't really usable, but you can add custom settings by creating a private.xml.

See the source for the virtual keycode constants and the predefined settings.
