Works, but not perfectly for me.
In particular, when i SSH into my freerunner from a linux laptop, the 
cursor keys don't work in vim insert mode. They insert C and D and such 
instead. They only work in command mode.

The "vi" supplied with SHR has no problems with cursor keys in insert 
mode. They do the expected - they move the cursor in all modes.
