#2 Option as emacs meta key doesn't work

MacSSH ignores the setting of the "Emacs Meta Key:"
toggle in the Terminals dialog box if you tell it to
use the option key as the Emacs meta key. If you set
the toggle to "Off", then no key combination will work
as the Emacs meta key. However, if you set it to either
Control + Command or Option, then Control + Command is
the key sequence used to simulate the meta key.

    I suspect it didn't work in the original bettertelnet code.
    it's now fixed in the last source tree.

    It did work in the original bettertelnet code, but required
    a special
    "emacs kchr" to be installed in the system file, which
    without modification only worked like the US keyboard
    layout. The new MacSSH way is a lot better.
