I edit a lot of lisp programs, and I find I just use `C-M-b C-M-k' -- it's
actually easier to type, since you can just hold down the C-M- keys, and
doesn't involve any `stretch' keys like DEL.

You can actually move around easily while still holding the C-M- keys (e.g.,
hold down C-M- and then hit `u u b') before hitting `k', and I don't find
that deleting the _previous_ sexp is common enough to really warrant a
dedicated bit of space in my brain...

Come now, if we were really planning to harm you, would we be waiting here, 
 beside the path, in the very darkest part of the forest?
