All in all, the situation created by XFree86 and Linux is a confusing
one.  Given that XFree86 turns off the Linux handling of C-M-delete as
a command to reboot, shouldn't it use C-M-delete for killing the X
server, rather than C-M-backspace?  That way, one key would be used by
the system for two similar purposes depending on the situation, and
the other key would always be available for other programs.

Wouldn't it be nice if the kernel, OS, window system, and window manager could

be queried to find out which keys each of them traps to kill/restart itself?
