<Esc> <Esc> [ is equivalent to ^[, which is equivalent to ESC.  This code should not be bindable to anything because <Esc> by itself is not bindable.

Currently, in a nanorc a "bind ^[ down main" is shown in red, but nano does not protest and accepts the binding: <Esc> <Esc> [ will now move the cursor one line down.

Expected behavior: nano should report an error when trying to bind ^[, and it should report an unbindable key when typing <Esc> <Esc> [.
