For that to work, it requires having 'set suspend' in your
nanorc.  (Which I don't have, because it annoys me when nano
drops into the background when I accidentally hit ^Z.)

Luckily one can toggle suspendability on with M-Z, but...
somehow that doesn't seem to work when nano is screenless.

When I use nano with --ignorercfiles, M-Z does work.
Maybe the colors do something strange with the pipe?

And when I use LANGUAGE=en, it works too.  Ha!
Esperanto pisses off the pipe, too.  :)
