	I am also working on an app to implement block mode (aka
rectangular selection). I think I am going to use the "ALT" key.

	There is no standard governing the use of ALT keys in window
managers, but there is a 'standard by convention' of using the ALT key for
block mode due to the Microsoft platform.  CTRL key is the standard for
appending a selection (without necessarily extending it).

	I agree that it should be configurable.  FYI, Nedit uses the CTRL
key for block mode.
