This is working for "emacs.exe -nw".  In fact, out of the box, it works
even better than "winpty emacs.exe -nw", where keyboard shortcuts like
"C-x C-c" aren't working for me!

Unfortunately, for the more important use case, "emacsclient.exe -nw
test.txt", or the like, a new frame - outside of the "defterm" window -
is always opening up.

(I'm just testing the limits of Emacsland under Windows - to steel a
 designation of Eli Zaretskii.)  :-)

Thank you
