On the contrary, providing ANSI X3.64 / ECMA-048 / ISO 6429 control
sequences in a library seems entirely reasonable to me.  It is a standard,
and it's not like they change or are system-dependent.

Yes, there are terminals that don't implement those standards.  How many
of them are used by anyone other than hobbyists as part of computer
