the xterm(1) manpage documents the key/event bindings, including the cool
stuff like control-rightclick = font select menu.
The one line about the SHIFT+INS behaviour is:
Shift <KeyPress> Insert:insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0) \n\
so it's not surprising you heard about this from xterm hackers instead of
seeing it yourself. Unless I knew what that line was supposed to do, I
don't think I'd be able to figure it out without trying it or reading a
whole bunch more docs, but reading the bindings list can give you an idea of
what kind of stuff xterm has.
use xkeycaps to find out what modifiers/keysyms your keys set/send.
#define X(x,y) x##y
