Uh, I don't *intend* to hold the key down, it's just a slow little 
finger on the "shift" key. The point is that shift-return is *likely* to 
happen during fast typing of Python source code, and the resulting 
"new-line-before" is rarely useful (power editor or not). In my view, 
even a power editor should not spank a user for otherwise harmless 
keyboard noise.

The suggestion of remapping the default to alt-enter is a good one.
