I like this feature, but there are two issues with the patch.  With it applied:

1. Compiling with --with-slang fails, because S-Lang doesn't define KEY_BTAB.

2. If you run nano with the --rebindkeypad option, pressing Shift-Tab
generates the escape sequence Esc [ Z under the Linux console (and
some X terminals as well).  However, convert_sequence() interprets
that as F14, based on the FreeBSD console.  (Some quick googling shows
that it's changed now, and Esc [ Z is Back-Tab [Shift-Tab] on the
FreeBSD console according to its terminfo(5) manual page.)  If
Shift-Tab is more important to support than F14 is, it could be
changed; should it?
