It's inappropriate to use this style for anything but optional short-cuts,
because there _are_ many cases where meta/alt functionality is messed up;
it's not at all rare under X to find someone has mapped all their `alt'
modifiers to meta, or the reverse (though probably an emacs user would have
done the former).

In New York, most people don't have cars, so if you want to kill a person, you
have to take the subway to their house.  And sometimes on the way, the train
is delayed and you get impatient, so you have to kill someone on the subway.
