If there is no binding for S-<foo> where <foo> is a function key, then
Emacs will use the binding for <foo> instead.

This means that just doing

(global-set-key (kbd "S-<kp-7>") 'forward-char)

will change what C-h c S-<kp-7> will do!

Why does Emacs do such strange things?  So that people can hit C-f
even if CapsLock is on.
