If I recall correctly, some keys, including the arrows and DEL, are
actually a very fast combination of other keys, and if you could type
fast enough, you could do the same thing by hitting the corresponding
key sequence. This would also result in effectively disabling all
keys that depend on ESC being the first character of a sequence if you
Might I ask why you would want to disable ESC in vi?
