#17281: Can't bind J

 Hello everyone,

 I'm trying to change the default key bindings of `finch`.

 I've read the man page of finch(1) throughly and I'm experiencing a
 problem binding the following keys to commands:




 I understand why `c-m` may be problematic, I've heard on other programs'
 manuals (Vim for example) that the terminals can't really differentiate
 between `c-m` and the Enter Key.

 As for `c-[` and `c-]`, binding some functions to these could really help
 me.. It just doesn't work, I also want to bind two other functions to
 `c-{` and `c-}` and it doesn't work as well. I tried `c-shift-[` and
 `c-shift-]` as well and it doesn't work as well.

 I really need to bind these keys because most of the default bindings of
 `finch` have alt as a modifier just like most of my tmux bindings so I
 really need to solve the collisions.

 I would really appreciate some help if anyone had experience with it..
