Does anyone have a live VT52?

most newer VTs can be switched to VT52 mode in setup. I don't have a
real VT52, but I can, as certainly many others here, easily offer to
type in whatever you want me to using a VT320 or VT420 switched to VT52
mode. I might even dig out a VT100, which IIRC can also be set to VT52
mode. I think their behaviour will be close enough to a real VT52 to
make your patch fully compatible. And, yes, thanks, I do know how to
produce an ESC with those LKnnn keyboards. I assume at least one of the
five characters is 0x1B?
