Depending on how it's installed, "xterm" could be the same as "xterm-r6",
"xterm-xf86-v44", "xterm-new", etc.  The last would (in relatively recent
version ;-) include definitions for control/shift combinations of the
cursor keys.  It doesn't include _all_ combinations, but does include most
of the usable ones after discounting window managers, etc.

How can I tell? I looked in /lib/terminfo and found these in x:
xterm        xterm-debian  xterm-r5  xterm-vt220
xterm-color  xterm-mono    xterm-r6  xterm-xfree86

infocmp -x xterm

would show the extended capabilities for xterm, if any.
