That's really harshly put.

> Before merging the code for beginning-of-line into ${terminfo[khome]}, there were 3 different codes set for the same action, ^[[1~ being just one of them. The same applies to kdch1, which is mapped in st to \E[3~, whereas the zsh config again had 3 different entries for it. Maybe it has something to do with \E vs. ^[, whatever the difference might be.

I'm pretty sure the difference between ^[ and \E[ is notation. the
actual character used there is 0x27. Try reading up on the topic.
