BTW, this is a potentially dangerous binding, as I learned to my dismay:

Because there are many common C-M- ... bindings in Emacs and my
fingers are very used to hitting C-M- (whereas C-S- bindings are very
rare), when I decided to try this new binding, I reflexively hit
C-M-bs by mistake ... and C-M-bs is a special key-sequence that _kills
the X server_!  Ouch!!

I suspect more than a few people will do the same thing...
