I agree it should be added, and as I pointed out in a different reply
that is also more consistent with the binding that already exists in

However, the `make-help-screen' macro uses (read-key-sequence nil) to
get the key, but when I press S-SPC, that function only returns " ".

So perhaps we need to change `make-help-screen' to use `read-event' or
something?  But that seems like a bigger change than I want to get into
right now just to add this binding.

IOW, if anyone wants to help with this, please go ahead.
