It sounds like something is severely screwed up in your configuration, if
the traditional Emacs keys don't work.  Control-y should paste, and
Control-x Control-c should quit.  This is how Emacs is supposed to work on
*every* platform, and there's certainly no intention that it not work on
Aqua.  If it's not working for you, you need to do some investigation into
what's going on.  Maybe some environment customization is filtering out the
keystrokes before Emacs sees them.
