The expose button on my macbook is absolutely useless to me as I use an application launcher. Is there some easy way to re-bind it to something more useful (like show desktop)? Or must I muck around with plists and the like to get anything done?

You can use FunctionFlip to change it to F3. You can change it to another key with KeyRemap4MacBook:

<autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::EXPOSE_ALL, ModifierFlag::NONE, KeyCode::EXPOSE_ALL, ModifierFlag::COMMAND_L</autogen>

See the source for predefined settings and other key constants.
