Maybe I'm a bit dim on this, but I don't really get the point about
using `overriding-terminal-local-map'.

Stefan proposed this when Lennart replied to Juri's suggestion to
implement winsize.el (bw-interative.el at that time) as a major mode.
Can `overriding-terminal-local-map' be useful in the context of a major
mode?  of a minor mode?  of a loop waiting for an event?

For now I don't see any good reasons to implement window-resize.el as a
minor mode or to use `overriding-terminal-local-map'.  I guess I miss
something here.

Can anyone shed some light?
