For that you'll need to register a GDK event filter. You could have a
look at http://tinyurl.com/93cjky. The following functions might be of
xfce_shortcuts_grabber_constructed() - this registers the filter
xfce_shortcuts_grabber_event_filter() - this is the event filter
which is triggered whenever an X event occurs. It ignores everything
but KeyPress events.
In addition to this filter you'll also need to grab certain key
combinations (in your case everything related to the Shift modifier).
This is slightly more complicated as it requires a bit of knowledge
about X keymaps and keysyms. In case of libxfce4kbd-private, this
happens inside xfce_shortcuts_grabber_grab().
Note that you also want to connect to the "keys-changed" signal of the
default GdkKeymap in order to re-grab your key bindings when the
keyboard layout changes.

I guess you could use gdk_event_add_filter() again.
