Hello hello!

I don't think even Harald used any version of emacs on those punch
cards, although I seem to recall that he did some binary code
programming, bypassing the assembler..  Special tricks to enter
non-ascii codes on those punching machines.  Were there Meta and
Control keys there, or how did we do it?  Did it involve backspacing?
