Bug Description

Mednafen's keyboard controls can be configured by editing the ~/.mednafen/mednafen-09x.cfg file, but right now it needs to be done manually after installation, on every program run by pressing Alt+Shift+0 (to configure the controller number 0) or by passing the controls via command line parameters.

I suggest to improve the immediate usability of mednafen by adding some sane defaults in the config file out of the box. I'd go with the cursor keys for directions and, for the controller buttons, the common used keys in the corresponding emulators.
mess can be a good reference for standard keys too
