I don't particularly like the Emacs use of ^S/^Q either. We have however
learned to live with it, we use hardware handshake! This is really a big win
anytime. If you have a 19.2Kbaud modem I'll bet it can handle hardware
handshake. Most machines also handles it provided one use enough wires
in the cables between the modem and computer.
