TELNET to Unix Emacs

I got tired of typing escape-characters to emacs when I terminal to
unix machines from the LISPM. This patches the telnet character
typein filter to convert meta-chars to the sequence ESCAPE-followed-
by-char. It has probably appeared here before, but in case not, here
it is for anyone's use. Please pardon the length -- it was borderline
whether to just post a note or include the code.
This functionality has been included in Genera since 8.0, but it depends
on the setting of your serial line. If the line is an 8-bit line, it
prefers to send Meta as the high bit of the character (and you can
conditionalize EMACS to look for that). If the line is a 7-bit line, it
will turn any Meta char in to ESC followed by the char. Look at the
code for (FLAVOR:METHOD :FILTER TELNET:SERIAL-FILTER).
