In most cases I've seen `backtab' is the "correct" binding because it's
the one that makes logical sense: the command is about doing something
in the opposite direction from what the `tab' key does.
The reason why S-tab is (also) used is that `backtab' is rarely
available, and as a convention we use S-tab as a poor man's backtab.
