Eh? Which would be reselected? shift-click unselection is quite
complicated. It depends on both what was selected and which item was
selected last.

Simple example:
range select a list with shift-click, then shift-click on any selected
item but the one you clicked last. Now items between the shift-clicked
one and the last one gets unselected. 

Things get even more complicated if you mix this with non-range selects
made using i.e. ctrl-click.
