Just to make it clear the netbeans implementation is actually only
line oriented.
If the selection span less than one line the move/copy operations
works on the line with cursor.
If the selection span more than one line it operates on those lines.

Alt-Shift Left/Right/Up/Down Shift lines left/right/up/down
Ctrl-Shift-Up/D Copy lines up/down
