For the record, I've tested this a bit, and it seems good to me so far.

Some sequences still aren't handled optimally: if you're using
Xfce-Terminal, and press Esc followed by Alt-Shift-<left arrow> or
Ctrl-<left arrow>, you get an "Unbound key" message, but you also get
those without this patch applied.  (Handling an escape followed by a key
combination that is only interpreted as an escape sequence, as those two
are, is obviously more complicated.)
