If battery is dead is there a way to shift Neutral?

I recently left my lights on (yeah - my bad) and drained the battery . Since I have another car in the garage I thought - "let me just push the SMART car aside and drive the other one". Lo and behold, I couldn't get the gear out of the park position. So I had to wait for AAA to come by to jump start me while I had a perfectly functioning car sitting in the garage.

This must be a feature (I don't quite agree with it) but is there a way to place the car in neutral without battery power?

Put the key in the first position, press the brakes, and shift to neutral.
