I have written a set of functions to allow the use of the <esc> keys in
a more reasonable fashion. It resides in JERRYB;ESCAPE.
An interesting application is the use of the keys in the manipulation of windows,
obviating the need for the mouse in many cases.
Loading the file and doing <esc><help> will list all defined escape keys.
The function KBD-ESC-INSTALL-FUNCTION is used for defining new keys or the
escape key (lambda) may be used to bind a key in realtime while (pie) can
unbind a key.
Note that whatever you hang on an escape key runs in its own process to protect
the keyboard process.
