Actually on the two Linux boxes I tried, Shift-Tab and
Ctrl-Shift-Tab both appear to send ESC [ Z.  I checked this
by hitting "Ctrl-V" at a shell prompt, followed by the
keystrokes in question to see what echoed back.  Ctrl-Tab
seems to just send "Tab," which is equivalent to Ctrl-I.


X11 programs may be able to bind these keystrokes, but
nothing over a normal terminal link will be able to, since
metadata isn't sent with every keystroke. 


We sell Spatulas, and that's all!
