Wait. They don't seem to be implemented as you describe them above.
They are like

	\E[%d@ and \E[%dP

And I don't understand the sense of an additional parameter. While
\E[%p1%d@ would make sense, I think "ic" is only for moving to make
place for additional characters. Inserting N * char c is provided by
switching to insert mode (im) and then repeating char c N times (rp).
Do I miss something?
