Thanks.  However... you still haven't learned to put the logical
operator and the end of the line.  That is the style; don't vary
it.  I've corrected it and applied and pushed the patch.

Aaah...  Good detective work!

With "not coloured" you mean it's not colored /green/ --
because it's colored allright: in red.

Binding ^@ works, but the side effect is that it also rebinds ^Space.
So I think we should reject any attempt to rebind ^@, to avoid this
confusing behavior.

^[ is the same as pressing <Esc>, so if you type ^[ followed
by X, you toggle the help lines.  So yes, an attemtpt to rebind
^[ should be rejected too.

And ^{, ^}, ^|, ^~, and ^` should be rejected too since they
have no effect.

Please report a new bug.  It's related to the previous one, but
that doesn't matter.  It will require more fixes in the triaging
step, and some tweaks the nanorc.nanorc file.
