Function to get a key from name is needed.

In key module, there is a function pygame.key.name() that gets the name from a key code, but there is no function that does the opposite, i.e. get the key code from name. It would be easy to implement, just call SDL_GetKeyFromName.

It is needed because when for example someone uses the name() function to store key mappings in readable format, it is hard to load the key mapping back.
