Crazy conditional keybindings is probably an equivalent amount of work,
unless you need to do mode-specific bindings. But the see the files
in the subdirectory term of your lisp directory. It seems
that you can do things like 

(define-key function-key-map "\e[161q" [S-up])

If you run debian, you need to install the emacs21-el package to get 
the lisp source files.

There seems to be a sizeable number of people still running in tty 
mode. I guess about 1% of those run on actual terminals, the rest
are runnning various terminal emulators.
