In Snow Leopard, to move a window to a different space, I had to use the mouse to select the window and use the keyboard to select the target space (e.g., ctrl + 1,2,3).

In Lion, what keyboard (maybe in slight conjunction with mouse as before) shortcuts can I use to move a window to a different desktop?

Pressing the shortcuts for changing desktops while dragging a window should still work, but the shortcuts have to be enabled in System Preferences.

SizeUp supports for example assigning ⌃⇧→ to moving a window to the next desktop.

You can also (without modifying system settings) click and hold the window, hold down the control button, and drag to the edge of the screen.
