As far as I know, and that's not very far....

Term-mode and ansi-term are now very similar.  They both have two modes
"character" and "line".  "Line" is like *shell*, each line is sent at
once to the shell.  "Character" is like a terminal, each character is
sent.  The only difference between ansi-term and term-mode is the escape
character (C-c for term-mode and both C-c and C-x for ansi-term).  So,
you can over-ride keybindings quite easily using term-mode-map in line
mode but not in character mode.  In character mode term-raw-map is used.
That looks like something you wouldn't want to tinker with.
