Brings back memories of TECO - Text Editor and COrrector. A single ESC meant to exit text insertion mode and return to command mode. Hitting the ESC key twice in a row signaled TECO to execute the command you just typed.

TECO was a very powerful and dangerous editor. Powerful because almost every key on the keyboard was a valid command. Dangerous because it was a pure interpreter that only stopped executing commands when it either encountered an error or completed executing all the commands, combined with almost every key being a valid command, a minor typo could, and often did, make a huge mess of whatever you were editing.
