No, not for me.  The problem is that Emacs 21.3 (and CVS Emacs) don't
distinguish between `C-æ' and `æ'.  Emacs 21.2 did that.

In 21.2:

(read-key-sequence "")  Input: æ  =>   [230]
(read-key-sequence "")  Input: C-æ  => [134]

In 21.3:

(read-key-sequence "")  Input: æ  =>   [2278]
(read-key-sequence "")  Input: C-æ  => [2278]


This means that I can bind `æ', but not `C-æ'.
