fix: change default keybinding of cursorColumnSelectUp to ctrl+shift+… #41471
I actually ended up reverting this commit.
I cannot accept it because the column selection keybindings work together:
Changing just two of them only creates confusion. And we cannot change all of them because ctrl+shift+left and ctrl+shift+right are used for word selection.

Ah I see, quite a minor detail IMHO. Also it doesn't seem to work with multiple cursors for me or is this a bug? If not, I don't see the use-case for the command at all.
Also note that
@jhasse I am referring to Windows. On Windows, we bind the following:
They are special commands that implement a special kind of selection which some other editors call box selection. They store hidden state (e.g. the right variant can go beyond the max column on a line). Rebinding two of the commands makes no sense, as they are useful together.
If all you are doing is adding cursors in a straight line, then, feel free to use ctrl+alt+up and ctrl+alt+down which do that. These commands (column selection) are different, and the differences are indeed subtle, but important.
