It was introduced in Emacs 22, that's why :)

It does.  You can also bind it to any key you want, instead of the
default <C-S-backspace>.  So if you like hitting C-k to use it, instead
of the default, you can bind it to this key in your ~/.emacs file with:

  (global-set-key (kbd "C-k") 'kill-whole-line)

Have fun,
