      But I'd vote against binding `kill-whole-line' to

      to use this command -- which means that it would me more inconvenient
      and complicated than `C-a C-k C-k', so I won't use it.

      [C-S-<backspace>, or still better: `C-S-k' is fine, IMO.]

   C-S-<backspace> is probably safer than S-M-<backspace>.

   C-S-k is more intuitive.  However, are there people who actually use
   the Caps Lock key?  Because C-S-k might give them trouble.

Are there any objections against changing the binding of
kill-whole-line from M-S-<backspace> to C-S-<backspace>?
(To avoid people accidentally killing their X server by hitting the
wrong key.)  I could commit that change if there are no objections.
