As far as I can tell, this is not possible.  You can define extra keys to
use for escapes (the man page shows how to do this for F11), and you can
even do multi-key sequences, but there must be a single escape character
defined, too.

My solution was to pick a control key that I rarely, if ever used.  So I
have C-\ (I rarely send breaks to my terminal).  I recall Sven Guckes
recommending C-z, for those who rarely suspend programs.  (And with screen
you rarely need to.)
