I don't remember why I bypassed ESC <right> etc.  Maybe I wanted to
change as few bindings as possible.  Maybe I thought users of R2L
script are unlikely to invoke these commands via ESC.  Maybe I just
made a mistake.

If someone is annoyed by the difference (which should only be visible
in bidirectional text), feel free to make ESC do the same as Meta in
this case.
