I have a shell script that uses enlightenment_remote and xmodmap to change AUX bindings.  It might help:

As Raster says you don't have to program to make changes to the mappings.  From my observations it looks like Enlightenment saves the current keybindings on exit.  There is probably some other way to have E save its settings though.
