Duh, silly me: not sure why I didn't think of it before, but I xmodmap'd
some of my keys so as to have a `Menu` key and a `F16` key, and indeed
I see here that the both emit `\E[29~` in my xterm.

So, I'd tend to agree that mapping that `\E[29~` sequence back to
[print] is probably worse than mapping it to either [f16] or [menu].
And I suspect that a menu key is a lot more common nowadays than an
f16 key.
