How would readline tell the difference?  Why have the useless `mm'
capability at all, then?  If `km' is used to indicate the presence of a
meta key, and users need to configure its behavior separately, what
function does `mm' serve?  If the answer is that you want a way for
applications to make sure there's an 8-bit path between the terminal
and the terminal driver, then readline's behavior is appropriate.

`mm' tells how to make the terminal provide that capability;
it does not tell whether the user wants to use it.
