I disagree.  C-g is supposed to stop Emacs, not other processes.  I
don't consider it a good idea to have to worry about arbitrary
processes terminating.  IIRC, keyboard-quit events even cut straight
across a lot of the input loop.  It is probably not even useful to
rebind them in local keymaps, since those keymaps might not be active
at the time C-g is pressed.
