Enable ctrl-<arrow> keys for moving between tmux and emacs panes (requires emacs, tmux and zsh). This allows you to use ctrl-<arrow> to switch panes in an emacs split, and then move to the nearest tmux pane once you get to the edge of the emacs window. Particularly useful if you have tmux split with emacs in one pane, and zsh in another
