Good point, this is the only advantage IMO. I wonder if we could find a compromise.Alt mode by default. Here is the problem with ctrl mode, the terminal uses special control characters such as ctrl-c and ctrl-z for stop and suspend. Of course in control mode ctrl-c is used to copy and ctrl-z is used for undo. So what do you do if you want to copy from the terminal? In alt mode there isn't a problem. alt-c and alt-z are available.
