As vi user I'm not a real emacs person. I'm using the cursor keys a lot
in tcsh, especially to scroll through the history, so it's quite helpful
to do all moving using the cursor keys in tcsh, imho.
In the meantime I found that Cygwin's rxvt when running under X *does*
recognize ALT + Cursor keys, and the escape codes are identical to rxvt
So, the question is this: Why does rxvt not recognize ALT + Cursor keys
in Cygwin in native Windows mode?
