Perhaps it makes sense from a compatibility standpoint, but I
suspect that many users would be surprised by the inability to
rebind C-[ or C-i.  (Binding C-i also rebinds TAB.)

Would it make sense to show a warning when trying to bind keys such as
C-[ or C-i?  (Or, perhaps better, to show it in the "*Help*" buffer?
C-h k C-[ only shows "ESC- " when I try, though.)

Would it make sense to introduce a variable to turn this behaviour off
in a graphical environment?  The default could stay as is.
