Done in v4.0.0: keys are now normal options, so with fset plugin you can display for example all keys bound to command /input with this command: /fset =/input

you could try nicekey script available @ http://anti.teamidiot.de/static/nei/*/Code/WeeChat/alpha/ maybe it can do what you need

Fri 18 Jan 2013 06:08:39 PM UTC, original submission:  

There is currently no way to quickly find out which key or mouse events are bound to a given command.  The workaround is /key list and than manually search for the command you are looking for, or to just guess via /input grab_key_command, but these are both suboptimal, and make it hard to spot when you have multiple key/mouse combinations bound to the same command (which could occupy valuable space in the event binding namespace).

Ideally there should be a command "/key for" or similar, e.g.

  /key for /input grab_key_command

which would output "meta-k".
