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

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

Yes, I suspected something like that.  :)  Locally I've now guarded the
two occurrences with #ifdefs.

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.)

URL?  You're saying that nano on modern FreeBSDs is misinterpreting
"Esc [ Z" as F14?  And it should be in fact a backtab?

If Shift-Tab is more important to support than F14 is, it could be changed;
should it?

Certainly it should.  A Shift-Tab should not start a replacing session.
