If you want to go down the "my favorite text-based editor for Git commit
should work" I think the keys must then me more or less configurable,
because not everybody uses Nano, and if they don't use Nano ^X and ^O
aren't required (and ^O looks like a keybinding one could want to open
the open dialog even in the VTE).

So a really naive "configurability" like the attached patch might be
needed then (or even a more real binding description, but that's
somewhat a detail).

Don't worry, the key eating only happens if the VTE is focused :)
