C-g is Emacs' way to trigger a `quit' signal.

I seem to remember that I already provided an answer to the question.

Any question like that is supposed to be abortable with C-g.  It would
be a nuisance if that happened to stop the process.  It would also
mean that the sequence to stop a process would need to be C-g y and I
don't see the advantage over C-c C-k.

There is a concern that we should probably unify on this key sequence:
for example, I have been bitten by C-c C-c actually killing a CVS
