This does not answer the question, but in order not to step on emacs'
copious keybindings, I use the nested keybinding feature to put a not so
common prefix (ctrl-`) before some of my keybindings. This doesn't
solve the vnc thing, but maybe you could put your function key bindings
behind a prefix so MC can have the function keys to itself.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
