Maybe I am missing the point but I cannot imagine why one would need to
adjust it more than once. Maybe if one logs into a single network host from
multiple sources... But still this option makes sense mostly when used on a
local machine. I think that beyond certain values enabling this option is not
usefull at all.

You could try it at least :) It doesn't change the default behaviour it just
adds the ability to configure old_esc_mode and the related timeout (I should
have mentioned that earlier).

In this case Denis Vlasenko's patch should suffice.
