Would love to be able to remap the keyboard so the enter key on
the keypad would work the same as the return key. They serve
separate functions currently.

    In case you're actually reading this, you should be able to
    do this already.
    Use the "Set Macros" command in the Edit menu (or, per
    session, "Edit Session Macros" from the favorite editor
    dialog) and look at the Keypad symbols page. There are two
    customizable strings for Enter -- the DECPAM application
    mode (AM) and the default mode (!AM).

    Hmm - reopening.

    If all you want to do is make the enter key send the same
    code as the return key, all you need to do is guess the
    right code (either \015 or \015\012 or \015\000) and make
    sure that the enter key sends that code in the correct mode
    (either application mode or not). For example, in ssh, the
    correct code to send is simply \015 so changing the
    appropriate enter code to that (probably instead of
    \015\012) will do the trick.
    This won't make the enter key act as the return key in
    linemode and such, though. It might be useful to add some
    way of making the enter key do something default rather than
    send a programmed macro, so that such special behavior could
    happen.
