Nautilus shortcut for new blank file

Bug Description

Oneiric up-to-date
Nautilus 3.1.4

It would be nice if I could create a new file by pressing a shortcut like it is already possible for folders (CTRL+SHIFT+N).
I suggest CTRL+SHIFT+F or M to creat a new blank file (M, because it is next to N and has no affinity with CTRL+F).
