It has been used to jump out of ssh and cu for quite some time.

This is even worse. This means you cannot disconnect your xm consoles when
you're ssh in your xen box... because the first ssh is going to trap the
escapes and disconnect you.

keyboard ----ssh---> xenbox ---xmcons---> domU

You can do '~~.'  I agree that it is a pain, though.

What do non US people normally use to escape from telnet?

You can also 'ssh -e <char> ...' to remap the ssh escape, but...

The console escape should just be easily configurable to whatever the
xen box admin wants; then it could easily be made to work conveniently
despite any conflicting or problematic keyboard/ssh/remote access
hardware/application software/etc key binding issues.

We can remap the xen/dom0 switch key with the
conswitch=<switch-char><auto-switch-char> boot option; the console
escape should be configurable too.
