bitwise shifts gone?

Hmmm...

I just noticed that the bitwise shift left and right operators have 
disappeared from the language. When did this happen? The 'bitwise' 
modifier is still in the dictionary, but no indication as to how it 
might still be useful.

 From this I assume (yeah, I know...) that the engine is smart enough to 
compile a shift instead of a multiply if the multiplier is a multiple 
(see what I did there?) of 2. YMMV.
