cited "7-bit world" here, really, but even "8-bit terminals" may use
other mechanisms to implement the "meta" keys. Esc-char is, IMHO, the
worst possible way of doing it, and even if it isn't, Vim has to work
with *any* kind of terminal, so...

just as Bram said, but I'm not sure if you understood why. Again: Vim
has to work with many terminals, and it's not a good idea to hardcode
workarounds in Vim for certain kinds of terminals. That's all, it's
nothing personal against you or against any terminal, really.
BTW, politeness is free (as in beer), and Bram doesn't owe you ANYTHING
and he doesn't even have to give Vim for free: he is kind enough to do
it, so even if you don't like how Vim works please save your sarcasms
for other people that maybe deserve it. Bram is not one of them, and you
have Vim's source code available for free: add the feature you want and
even distribute your own version of Vim with that feature, but please
don't be so harsh with Bram...
