Why do you need a vt420? (I know the differences, but don't know of
any Unix applications which require them).

I just wired up a VT420 to my linux box. I made a complete nullmodem cable
and it even logs me out when I switch the terminal off.
However, there are a few issues:
- The VT420 supports several simultanous sessions. I believe this is
something like the screen program, but done natively in the terminal.
Am I right and is there a way I can make use of this?
- I've set up everything to use Xon/Xoff and it works well. But as soon
as I start emacs, this beast turns of xon/xoff because it wants to use
^S as a command key. What can I do against this?
- I would like to use the Alt key as Meta key in emacs. Can this be done?
- I am looking for tools which can make use of the enhanced and/or more
obfuscated features of the terminal.
- A code list would be very nice. I've got a VT100 manual, but the 420 surely
does more... Is there some online documentation somewhere?
