bug#22566: 24.5; Make shift key translation a customizable feature

User-agent: Notmuch/0.21 (http://notmuchmail.org) Emacs/24.5.1 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu)

Some people consider the shift translation done by Emacs to be a misfeature. I
agree with them. This is because when I accidentally press a key combination
which is not bound to any command, I would like to receive an error message
rather than running another command which I did not intend to run.

There is a long discussion about this issue at:

I wish that shift translation would be made a customizable feature. It causes
me a lot of trouble because I'm testing new key mappings for the linux console
(I'm making the shifted function keys to work in it) and shift translation in
Emacs makes it harder to tell if Emacs got the information about used shift
state right or not. (And no, Emacs does not always report that a key is
shift-translated. E.g. when I press <C-h> d <C-M-S-down>, I get "<C-M-down>
runs the command down-list" instead of "<C-M-down> (translated from
<C-M-S-down>) runs the command down-list".)

Thank you for your time!
