Exactly. For SHIFT-arrows I don't get special key codes return
from the console driver.

Exactly. F-keys are possible, but I've not yet an overview
how _different_ F-keys handled on different terminals.
Maybe we should switch to Alt-... For example I would not
support F1 because Alt-H should do the job.

A question: _HOW_ do you _call_ this key_list / edit_mode ?
Is it "common user access" (CUA) or such ?
Or is it simply a subset of "nedit" or similar. ?
Or is it "generic WINDOW$" ?

BTW "Close Window/Next window/Previous window"
won't be supported. Sorry.
