All the applications which admit a meta-key should accept 8bit, that is the
real meaning of meta. Send ESC instead of meta is a GNUish that became very
useful when utf8 came, because allows send meta characters in a easy
way. This is the reason because today is more common use ESC. You can adjust
readline (and it means all the GNU applications ...) using convert-meta,
enable-meta-key, input-meta and output-meta variables in .inputrc.
