Macs (except some of the very earliest Apple keyboards) have three modifier
keys: Control, Option, and Command.  I would expect Control to be used for
Control, Option to be used for Meta, and Command to be reserved for
implementing standard Macintosh shortcuts.  I think most Macintosh terminal
emulators have been doing things for years.
