If there is no hurry with the decision, then given the fact that
there are better keybindings, what about the following plan?

1. Bind `C-h =' to `what-cursor-position' and `C-h c' to `describe-char',
but keep `C-x =' bound to `what-cursor-position'.

2. Document everywhere in the documentation that `C-h =' is the new
keybinding for `what-cursor-position' and `C-x =' is deprecated.

3. After the release rebind `C-x =' to `calc-dispatch'.

Or alternatively, as David suggested, bind `C-x ,' to `server-edit' and
rebind `C-x #' to `calc-dispatch' after the release.
