Could be made work, probably, but implementation a bit messy, since,
say, C-q M-u  ==> C-q ESC u on text terminals, which presently then
inserts an ESC literal, followed by a self-inserted u ...

On the whole, I'm now really wishing there was a separate binding. Are
there _any_ C-x Ā«somethingsĀ» left???   C-x %  ?
