bug#1958: 23.0.60; org-mode does not honour shift-select-mode

Subject: bug#1958: 23.0.60; org-mode does not honour shift-select-mode

start with "emacs -Q"

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.
