Is there a way to set a profile to always have modifyOtherKeys=2?  I know I can right-click on the window, go to Terminal State and select it manually. I'm just wondering if there's a way to automate it.

No, it has to be turned on by a control sequence. The reason is that it generally doesn’t work well otherwise (e.g., with your shell or programs that take cooked input). What’s the use case?

Never mind, it's a bad idea.

Now that I understand things better, it makes more sense to me to attack tmux and mosh support :)
