Moving from tab to tab

We have a big inconstency in KDE, and it affects one of the most useful
feature recentely added : tabs!
In konsole, we move from tab to tab using shift + cursor left / cursor right
In Kopete, Martjin told me they use CTRL + page up / page down
I just read in kde-cvs that kbabel use CTRL + / -
KSirc uses ALT + cursor left / cursor right, just like XChat.
I havn't figured it out in konqueror yet (is it possible ?).
Mozilla uses CTRL + pageup / down, like Kopete
I think Opera uses shift + mouse wheel for that. Else, CTRL + TAB is the
standard short cut on windows to move from one MDI window to another and it
works on Opera/Windows. It can not apply to KDE though.
We urgently need to standardised on that and apply the standards to all
apps. I personally like the konsole way, which is easy and unobtrusive
Besides, it is one of the first application in KDE to have it. I don't
think any application is using this shift thing yet, so many application
could keep their current way of switching tab and adding this standard one.
It would for example be a good idea for konqueror to accept the mozilla way.
I hope we can address this before KDE 3.2 .
