The unfortunate thing for GIMP is that Shift is not quite the 'invert'
keybinding (undo/redo). In other applications this works extremely well
because the shift key is the invert-keybinding, but for some reason we
have Ctrl (dodge/burn, sharpen/blur, FG/BG fill, horizontal/vertical
flip ...). 

If we were to be consistent, this would have changed so that the shift
key is again again the invertor. But this would mean a lot of replacing
of Ctrl/Shift throughout the tools.

I, for one, would welcome some thought put into consistency.
