I have only standard, US PC keyboards, probably the most common keyboards
there are currently. `C-\' is very easy to hit by mistake: `\' is just above
the Enter key and just to the right of `]'. There is nothing hard about
hitting `\', and one could easily hit `C-\' when trying to hit `C-]'
Perhaps if the current locale is en_US (and other en variants, since many use the US layout and have little need for input methods), then C-\ should not automatically select an input method the first time it is hit. Then the user will be prompted and can hit C-g. This will overcome the problem that if it is hit by accident by someone who knows nothing about input methods, they have no way of knowing what has gone wrong.
