[Bug-moe] keycodes are entered into buffer

Hello Antonio,

I've tried out moe.  (It required installing lzip in order to decompress
the tarball, which is inconvenient.  You might consider offering at least
also a gzipped tarball.)

You say somewhere: "Forget learning curves. There is nothing to learn."
Well... that isn't true.  There are several things that one must first
find out before being able to do them.  For example, searching the next
occurrence backwards.  It requires typing ^H to find out that one has to
type ^O F to switch the direction.  Etcetera.

But now why I write.  One of the first things I tried in moe was:
Shift+Left in order to select a bit of text.  "Key code 393(0x189)
ignored".  Okay.  Same result for Shift+Right.  But when I type
Shift+Up or Shift+Down, the strings "1;2A" and "1;2B" are entered
into the buffer.  The same for any Ctrl+Arrow keystroke.  This is
unexpected and undesirable.

And then a question: how do I jump from word to word in moe?
(In many editors one can use Ctrl+Left/Right for that.)
