" That, plus a mind that is fairly good at picking up stray nuggets of
" information and filing them away for later use.  I think the ESC [ p
" and ESC [ q sequences were documented somewhere for SunOS; I forget
" whether I found something that said they worked in OBP or whether I

i think they're from cmdtool/shelltool, and i have also seen something
explicitly stating that those escapes also worked in the console.
makes sense that the tools would be little windowed consoles in code
