C'mon guys, you've changed the thread.

My question is about whether I should be binding the quit character or `C-g',
and if the former, what the best way to do that is. Is the way I mentioned a
good one?

Please see my original message for the questions I'd like answers to.

I am not trying to set the quit character to something other than C-g, and I am
not interested here about the Emacs 23 changes wrt the quit character. Please
start a different thread for such stuff.
