summary: Emacs cursor-key etc mappings
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

Quite a few applications which don't understand VT100 cursor-key sequences do understand Emacs-style ones. It might thus be a good idea to have an option to emit them. Sensible ones include:
Up ^P
Down ^N
Left ^B
Right ^F
Home ^A
End ^E

Patch (unreviewed): 3FB25127.9040101@endbracket.net
