This is getting off thread for the Icicles proposal.

WRT Icicles, FWIW: Icicles makes several minibuffer bindings that are keys
you cannot use in terminal mode. For this reason, if you use terminal mode,
then Icicles warns you that you probably don't want to use it in terminal
mode without rebinding some keys, and the same thing is stated in the doc.
You will want to rebind S-TAB at the least.

I tried to pick keys that 1) were not already taken or 2) were not very
useful in minibuffer editing.
