 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.

Works for me.  I wrote a short proposal to Emacs Dev to stretch the
idea to a bigger audience than the bug report, which Adrian closed.
