Quick question: is a "gnome terminal" like a Linux virtual terminal when
it comes to the keyboard?  E.g., does <up> generate "ESC [ A"?

I run Emacs on a virtual terminal, and I have a keyboard enhancement
that gives me access to any key combination I need.  Perhaps this would
work for gnome terminal.
