"Is there a plan to integrate the tab key, cursor keys, esc, etc. also in 
this HTML5 client as it is integrated in ssh tools like iSSH 

Also, I tested with our physical Target Bluetooth keyboard today. It doesn't
work either, except for the Tab key. 

At least on the iPad, there's plenty of room in the control bar for extra
buttons, so we should be able to implement this.

CTRL, ALT, TAB and ESC all work fine using the GUI buttons. I think this is
good enough to close the bug.

Perhaps worth noting is that none of these keys (except tab) work with an
attached bluetooth keyboard on the iPad. xev gives no output, so I guess
they're being captured/ignored by iOS. Pressing ESC exits to iOS's main menu
screen for example. I'm not sure there's much we can do about this ATM, so
