It looks like it's been decided that X is the way to go, but before any
code is implemented, I thought I'd just stick my oar in - what if we
were to keep to the terminal and open a connection to an X server, if
available, and simply query the modifier key states when reading a key?

This way we can still have a console editor, but overcome the problem of
modifier keys, and not have to bother with window handling.

Good idea? Hackish idea?
Finally-got-rid-of-curses-and-I'm-trying-to-drag-you-all-back idea?
You decide.
