It looks like I picked the wrong Capnames off the terminfo(5)
man page for these last night.  Should be kich1 instead of kil1,
and kdch insted of kdel1.

The linux console seems to have these defs:

    kf11=\E[23~, kf12=\E[24~, kf13=\E[25~, kf14=\E[26~, kf15=\E[28~,
    kf16=\E[29~, kf17=\E[31~, kf18=\E[32~, kf19=\E[33~, kf20=\E[34~,
    kich1=\E[2~, kdch1=\E[3,

I identified these by using "cat -v"

I've tried the same thing in an xterm, and get seemingly strange
sequences from the HOME and END keys.

One other thing I notice about an xterm is that the NumLock
key seems to have no effect.  I'm not very familiar with X11,
and I may be doing something to cause this.  More likely, though,
I'm failing to do something and seeing unexpected default behavior
which I'll be able to change if I figure out how to do that.
