What exactly *is* a vertical tab? I don't think I've ever seen it on a
keyboard or used in the wild. I think I may have seen it on the
keybindings for a mainframe terminal I once used, but I didn't really dig
too deep because, as far as operating the mainframe was concerned, I was a
well trained monkey who could check and restart failed jobs.
