I tried using the Scroll Lock Key, and got an error telling me it is
unbound.  I figured out there was a library scroll-lock and loaded it.
The Scroll Lock Key still was unbound, though calling scroll-lock-mode
did what I would have expected to be on the scroll lock key.

I suggest putting an appropriate autoloaded default global key
definition on the Scroll Lock Key, since nothing is gained by not
binding it to something useful.  If a user happens to have his own
different definition, this will override the default anyway.
