It is impossible to use ctrl + shift combinations in the terminal world.
Shift makes an or with 0x20 and ctrl makes an and with 0x1f, so if you
press them at the same time you are going to have something like
(c | 0x20) ^ 0x1f == c & 0x1f.

I prefer the ctrl + shift for the reason I posted (they cannot be used
in a terminal application) and because I would like to use ctrl + insert
for an ascii mode sequence.
