Since both C-x and C-c are prefix keys, and thus used a lot in
sequence with other keys, C-x C-c has always seemed like a
particularly dangerous binding to me.

One of the first things I changed when I started to use Emacs was
to change the "kill-emacs" binding to C-x C-c C-x

(global-set-key "\C-x\C-c"      'nil)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-c\C-x"  'save-buffers-kill-emacs)

C-x C-c C-x works really well (it is still easy to type, and I've
never hit it accidentally).
