I'd like to set certain keys to be passed-through on certain sites. So, e.g., j/k would be passed through on ** but work elsewhere.

Is there a straightforward way to do this?

I switched back to vimperator from pentadactyl (too slow) and I needed this feature. It is provided by the :ignorekeys command, like so:

:ignorekeys add

This will ignore all keys, including : and / so you might want at least something like:

:ignorekeys add -except=:,/

See :help :ignorekeys for more!

To answer my own question, it sounds like there's allegedly a plugin for Vimperator that I never found, but It's built into Pentadactyl using the passkeys option.

Documentation here.
