I tried altering `mouse-drag-region-1' so that it may recognize
the event modifier `shift', and failed.  On the contrary, even
to re-map S-mouse-1 to `w3m-mouse-view-this-url-new-session' is
impossible.  It might be prohibited to change such basic keys.
Although it is not a solution at all, we can use the following
instead. ;-p

(define-key w3m-mode-map [C-S-mouse-1] 'w3m-mouse-view-this-url-new-session)

Well..., I think people who esteem consistency might dislike it,
though I don't mind about it so much, if anything, I'm regrettable
in losing of it.  Please decide what to do for it. ;-)
