Doug Kaufman wrote something which I think has no relationship to the
question (he described some PDCurses and PC stuff - I'm on PC, but my
main question was portable).

Let me repeat the question: I want to map some keysequence, say, ^[^[
to some "action", say LEFT_LINK.  The current scheme is to do it in
two steps (Why?!): I need to remap the keysequence to a symbolic
name/index, and then I need to remap this name/index to the action.

My question was about a choice of the intermediate input-name/index:
to not step on any possible "standard" keyboard input, I need this
input-name/index to be above the maximal standard input-name/index,
but Lynx would not allow this (as with the example 0x210 above, 0x81
may conflict with, say, cyrillic 'b' in some codepages).

Thus we need a user area available for remapping.
