Following myself...

The keybindings for enlightenment seem to be quite easy to change. I
just copied the /usr/share/enlightenment/config/keybindings.cfg to
~/.enlightenment/keybindings.cfg and edit it.

E.g. to make the logout-dialog come up with Alt-F1, find the

    __KEY F1

and change the action line to
    __ACTION __A_EXIT logout

This works especially if you don't use multiple desktops, as the Alt-F1
is normally used to switch to desktop 0.

Of course you can modify the Ctrl-Alt-Del keybinding or create your own
binding e.g. for Ctrl-F1

    __KEY F1
    __ACTION __A_EXIT logout

And you can make the Alt-Tab to bring up the task list

    __KEY Tab

by changing the action line to

    __ACTION __A_SHOW_MENU "taskmenu"

And so on...
