    !       ;; Try to find out the type of terminal by sending a "Secondary
    !       ;; Device Attributes (DA)" query.
    !       (send-string-to-terminal "\e[>0c")
    !       ;; The reply should be of the form: \e [ > NUMBER1 ; NUMBER2 ; 
    !       (when (equal (read-event) ?\e)
    !   (when (equal (read-event) 91)

Is there any danger that some terminal programs won't implement
that query, and that these read-event calls will hang?

Perhaps the best thing to do is install the patch
and see if anyone complains.

    + (defun xterm-turn-on-modifyOtherKeys ()

Please rename that to xterm-turn-on-modify-other-keys.
Likewise the following function.
