   Yes, the latter two are the ones I think we should delete
   because they risk enticing people to reboot.

We _already_ deleted those.  Miles is suggesting deleting the C-S-BS
binding for kill-whole-line because he believes that many users will
mistakenly hold down the Meta key rather than the Shift key.

** The old bindings C-M-delete and C-M-backspace have been deleted,
since there are situations where one or the other will shut down
the operating system or your X server.
