start with "emacs -Q test.org"
type "* bla"
and then shift-left
expected behaviour: since shift-select-mode is set to t by default
(see src/callint.c), I would expect that shift-movements select
a region, and that major modes should not override this behaviour,
without being asked of doing so.
actual behaviour: upon shift-left the binding org-shiftleft is called
which marks the current item as "DONE". This is very confusing for
people accostumed to shift-selection, which works very well in all
other emacs modes I know.
Possible solution: in lisp/org/org.el
only include the bindings
'([(shift up)] org-shiftup)
'([(shift down)] org-shiftdown)
'([(shift left)] org-shiftleft)
'([(shift right)] org-shiftright)
if the variable shift-select-mode is nil.
