Hi @arapte,

Great work on the PR ��

Don't you think that all the changes in `ListViewSkin` can be moved to `ListViewBehavior`? All that we do in the skin
class is to call `ListViewBehavior#updateSelectionModeKeyMapping`, which smells like feature envy.

Moreover, `ListViewBehavior` already has change listener attached to `selectionModelProperty`, waiting for us to re-use
it ��
