Re: Alt+function keys and other keys

What I wonder is why even on the reference terminal xterm, some key escape sequences aren't even recognized, including simple enough ones such as ctrl-f1 or alt-f1.

A possible way to fix all of this could be to allow raw character sequences to be assigned to commands in mc.keymap, such as

    PanelSortOrderByName = \eO5P

though this would make it more difficult to use. The best solution would be to properly support all escape sequences.

The issue here is that xterm is considered to be the reference, and in
fact in what concerns the PgUp / PgDown problem, it's a Gnome terminal
bug that VTE maintainers are unwilling to fix.
