Of course I did not say that. What made you think that?

When asked about your distribution, you used as argument that more
people downloaded your patched Emacs than the unpatched one. What's
the purpose of that comment?

It may be that not many people except me think it is a problem loosing
work when logging off. Perhaps they do not think of what they done once
they logged off? Or maybe they never do.

I certainly log off, and I've never lost data that way. Perhaps I'm
used to exiting Emacs (and other programs) before logging off. That's
not to say you're not pointing out a real problem (in fact, I've never
seen your patch, but a priori it seems like a good idea).

Maybe you are right, but as far as I remember there was no one saying
that it is very important to be able to use the Windows keys for example
to start Explorer from inside Emacs. But I might be mistaken of course.

I fail to see the flood of complaints about Emacs' use of Alt, too.

What about accessibility guidelines?

Important. Not a specific goal, AFAICS. I don't think use of alt is
the only problem in that regard. And remapping of keys for
accessibility reasons can (and perhaps should) be done outside Emacs,
with other tools.
