A problem with this terminal emulator (along, it seems, with most
others) is that it steals key sequnces which Emacs needs.

Amongst those which fbterm's author thought would never be used by a
user are C-<space> and C-M-k.

Maybe fbterm has a way of freeing up these key sequences (I didn't get
that far into its FAQ), but I doubt it.  That would make it not very
useful for running Emacs on.

Shame.  If only these terminal emulators could restrict themselves to
"standard" key sequences, I suspect they would have become more
prevelant than they have.
