System: NetBSD orchard.arlington.ma.us 1.3I NetBSD 1.3I (ORCHARDII) #3: Tue Dec 1 09:41:18 EST 1998 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/sandbox/sys/arch/i386/compile/ORCHARDII i386
wscons appears to have no equivalent to pcvt's "PCVT_META_ESC"
option; meta always sets the eighth bit of the character.
maybe i'm confused about i18n issues, but this would appear to
be problematic if you want a meta key and also want to be able
to enter non-7bit-ascii characters via a "compose" type
I notice this most with zsh, which has an emacs mode but
doesn't seem to play the bit-8-set == meta game..
this is a regression in functionality from pcvt to wscons..
try to get alt-x to send ESC x instead of 'x'|0x80
add a mode where the keypresses are preceded by ESC instead of
having their high bit set..

we have KB_METAESC / .metaesc now

should have been changed to state "feedback".
i can't find any documentation on how to set this in wsconsctl.8
State-Changed-When: Sat Aug 10 14:26:54 PDT 2002
The feature now exists, but wsconsctl.8 simply refers to wsksymdef.h for
possible .foo "variants". It would be nice if it had a copy of the list.
