Sounds fine so far.  However, a remote terminal can typcailly not destinguish
between left and right shift, so allowing for both shift keys would
make more sense for me.

Please dont do this.  I know where it comes from, and I hate that behaviour
from the MS world of screen readers since it was originally introduced there.
It just adds another layer of complication.  I'd rather prefer if
whenever a field is highlighted, character input just goes
to that field.  And whenever there is no form field active,
you can do your special keybinding thing.
