Disable Esc close for colorbox

I'm using the colorbox plugin for jQuery.

I know I don't have to have a close button, and

overlayClose: false
will prevent the window from being closed by clicking the overlay.

Is there a way to remove the Esc key-listener event?

Answer Source

From looking at the source, the escape key is bound to the keydown.cbox_close event from line 165:

    // Set Navigation Key Bindings
    $(document).bind("keydown.cbox_close", function (e) {
            if (e.keyCode === 27) {

You could comment out that binding, or use it for some other purpose.
