It's not safe to rely on function keys being usable. Even when the
keys are physically present, their working properly relies on a correct
termcap/terminfo description, and a correct TERM value, both of which
may be difficult to arrange.
Keys like arrows and page up/page down are much more likely to work even
if the TERM definition is slightly wrong.
