fluxbox key bindings without meta keys

I'm trying to get ion-like keybindings to work in fluxbox, but it doesn't seem to do anything when I don't put either Mod1, Mod2, or Control in it. For example, the following works:
Mod1 F1 :ExecCommand fbrun
Whereas this doesn't:
F1 :ExecCommand fbrun
Is there any way to get around this without having to hack fluxbox? Although I'm sure I could do something like this in fvwm2, I really don't want to have to recreate a fluxbox theme with one measley thing added.

Pretty sure flux wants the modifier - doesn't have to be Alt, but it wants one. Happy hacking.

Use "None" for a modifier:
None F1 :ExecCommand fbrun
