I've bound C-+ and C-- to text-scale-increase and text-scale-decrease
respectively, but also bound M-+ and M-- to increase/decrease the font
size in every buffer. I agree that C-x C-+ and C-x C-- can be a bit
cumbersome to type, but seeing as rebinding C-- (and M--) would break
negative-argument, it's certainly a bad idea to make those keybindings

But how about making C-x M-+ and C-x M-- default bindings for
increasing/decreasing the font size in every buffer? Has that been up
before? Would that break anything?
