The pull request reported:

This part is for CKEditor team:
Inserting   through special characters is one thing but users were also asking for possibility to insert   whith Shift + Space #5523 (just like in FCKeditor) and ability to encode   as numerical entity but this is rather covered by configuration options for entities e.g. config.entities_processNumerical = 'force';.

Hi j.swiderski, I think many users do not know about keyboard shortcuts so having both methods (specialchar for everybody and shortcuts for advanced users) is a good way to cover differents needs.

The PR is about specialchar, we could do another PR for keyboard shortcuts, including Shift + '-' to insert a non-break hyphen.
