I think the best results would come from calling the ioctl after
ncurses detects input.  The modifier key(s) are typically held down
for a considerable time longer than the modified stroke.  I suppose if
you have quick fingers on a slow machine it could be a problem, but I
would expect the user to adapt pretty easily.

Not sure if it would work as is on BSD, seems easy enough to adapt though.
