That's got to be hard enough, considering the terminal just provides
characters on the standard input. We can have a reverse lookup table
for each keymap, but that definitely would suck hard.

So far it is the size of the text window, i.e. the terminal unless
there is no status line and the status has to be printed to the window
too. Would you guys be more comfortable with less (e.g. one or two
lines less) than the full window size?
