    Hi, I've been wondering if Joe allows defining a key sequence like this: Shift+Left, Ctrl+Shift+Left and similar. I would like to map these to select text. I would like also for example to map Ctrl+Left to nextword. I'm trying to use a key binding to resembles to Kate or most DOS-style editors.
    I know it is possible to override the normal shift-key behaviour on linux using some system calls. So what I'm asking _is_ possible (just look at mcedit, which uses the Shift+ArrowKey selecting).
    If this wouldn't be possible with actual joe I will like to ask this as a feature request.

    Thanx
