And keeping your interface accessible to someone who can't use the
Home and End keys allows it to be used by someone who's using PuTTY on
Windows to SSH to a gateway and then SSH from there to a firewalled
computer that's running your application. And yes, I do exactly that,
and yes, for some reason Home/End don't always work. One day I'll
probably figure out what the issue is, but for now, I'm just glad
there are baseline text editors that don't need such keys...
Technology moves on, but not everywhere.
