    IMHO it is.  Currently you need to bind both M-<func> and ESC <func> to be
    effective for both tty and X (including keyboards without a Meta

Emacs doesn't treat ESC followed by a function key as equivalent to
Meta, so I don't think you need to bind the former at all.

I agree, as I said, that it would be better if Meta worked more
like Control- and so on.  I just don't think it is urgent.
