Not against this but I'd like to understand why it is needed.  All apps that 
I've seen treat shift-tab as different from tab, whether this is internally 
called "backtab" or whatever.  Can someone explain why the mapping S-tab -> tab 
is present in emacs?  Or is this resulting from something other issue specific 
to the NS port?
