Add a list of constants for event.which or .keyCode

E.g. spacebar, pagedown, enter, etc. These are all buttons commonly used that are coded with magic numbers (e.g. 32 instead of SPACE_KEYCODE, or 38 instead of ARROW_UP) all over the web. I think it would be nice if there was a way to standardize this instead of having to use a "cheat-sheet" e.g. http://mikemurko.com/general/jquery-keycode-cheatsheet/ to read such code.

I understand certain browsers have different conventions for these http://unixpapa.com/js/key.html but perhaps a function for normalization of keycodes can be added as well.

This would be great for a plugin, but would all a lot of bytes to core for something that isn't needed by everyone.
