Again, please don't. 

[FWIW, S-RET is used in at least one 3rd-party library for
an alternative (to RET) action on the input.]

What makes more sense, IMO, is to simply let `C-j' (newline)
be self-inserting.  There is no reason not to - along with
`?' and `SPC' (generally, not just for file names).  But I
repeat myself...
