Our goal is to get the rest of the line into the kill ring without
harming the file.

We could do C-k C-/, but that seems like overkill, especially as it
goes thru the whole deal of marking the file as modified first, etc.

We could do C-x C-q C-k C-x C-q
but still that will ring a bell or flash, like I did something wrong.

We could do C-SPC C-e M-w C-a, the current "family values wholesome
approved for junior" way, but that is still way longer than C-k C-/.
Did RMS play "twister" as a youngster?  With the fingers instead of

It would be nice to have another kind of C-k, yes, one little
keystroke, that wouldn't rip up your file just to get lines into the
kill ring.  Indeed, what is needed is the same action as C-x C-q
C-k... but without the "stigma" and bells and flashes that one is
causing an "error", and without having to append a C-x C-q after one
is done to resume normal editing.
