Screen can be changed however.  I always use screen, so I'm very aware of
screen problems.  Screen and joe don't like each-other much, BTW.

I'm thinking about binding screen's meta to my keyboard's App key, though I
honestly have no idea what to mape the App key to.  => There's gotta be a
thousand sequences not found on a normal 101 keyboard.  Of course, there are
also a thousand sequences I can't figure out how to get to do something
useful in Linux (ctrl/shift arrows for example)
