It is not much more awkward then current `M-#'.  Surely it is not
easy to type, but I think that easy to type is not a requirement for
a key sequence to invoke calc.  There are many frequently used
commands in Emacs that require more easy to type keys, but still
miss them.  Just one example of frequently used command without
a convenient keybinding is `other-window'.  I think most users switch
windows more often than invoke calc.  It would be too shortsighted to
allocate short and easy to type keybindings to less frequent commands.
