Nahuel, IIRC, on Mac Shift-Backspace is equivalent to "Delete" key. That 
is handled in #backspace, and your change keeps it.

Hernán, I agree with Nahuel. Shouldn't it be Option-Backspace in any 
other Mac editor? Doesn't it work like that with Nahuel's change?

To me, Nahuel's code looks OK. Maybe we'd add the same to 
#forwardDelete:, as in Windows and Linux, ctrl-Delete deletes the word 
to the next of the cursor.
