The code has been that way as long as I can remember.  Isaac might be
the only one who knows why shift was handled specially.  FWIW, I
considered getting a remote control like you have awhile back and
changed the code in question to treat shift like the other modifier
keys.  There were no ill effects as far as could tell.
