Oh com'on!  What is usual then?  How do you specify Control-Left?
Meta-Backspace?  Alt-up?  All the standard bindings used by the most
programs which can grab them...

*How many* keys can one define in terminfo?  With exception of
function keys, I think it is 20 or somesuch.  Even without using
duplication of PgUp and PageUp even the most primitive keyborads of
today have Tab Esc Enter Backspace + 4 arrows + 6 navigation keys + 4
gray-+/* keys, and you need to multiply by 5 to get all "Normal"
modifiers.  And there are Alt-b etc (40 more) to cover...
