Further down, the manual says:
`C-S-backspace' (`kill-whole-line') kills a whole line including its
newline, regardless of the position of point within the line. Note
that many text terminals will prevent you from typing the key sequence
I'd rather not go hunting for a new key for this command, for the reason
that Glenn gave.
