I think it's impossible.  X11 clients can see keydown and keyup events
for the modifier key(s) and the non-mod key separately.  Screen just
sees a single event (a keydownup, essentially) of the entire

For example if you press Control_L and Alt_L, nothing is
sent to screen until you also press (say) f -- at which point Screen
sees the two chords ^[ ^F.
