In the days of DEC it was possible to re-use the block of keys on the right (numeric/arrows and things) for editor commands. Is it possible to take-over this set of keys on a PC or can we only use them as what's written them?
They just generate a programmed character sequence, via a key map somewhere.  An editor can certainly intercept at the key level, as F did.  They could also be used for a small extension to the character set.
