Actually, it can if you use the 4-key keyboard scheme and I would definitely
like it to be the default key for that keyboard scheme :)
As for the 3-key (default) scheme, that one is harder to get right. Most
likely Konsole will have to remain a special case given the nature of the
xterm keyboard support required, though we may end up with a key that can
work ok, obviously.
Konqueror uses ctrl-[ and ctrl-] it seems to switch tabs (that's what
Configure Shortcuts tell me, I don't use tabs).
Actually, I would like a keyboard accel to be available in every tab widget
(also in KControl for example), because I don't use tabs for documents, but
do have to operate them there :)
Anyway, back to the issue: I don't have a strong opinion, so we could pick
about anything. ctrl-pgup/down is in use in editor windows though which makes
it a bad choice even though mozilla uses it. I'll probably end up with
ctrl-tab anyway on my keyboard scheme ;)
