C-x l           count-lines-page

I see that C-x w is empty.  May be `w' can stand for words.

I see that students, academics, writers interested in word counts.  Line
count or page count is not well defined.  They can be "fixed" (as in
"match fixing").

I would probably use C-x = for balancing windows (note the symmetry of
the character and `=' could stand for balancing your accounts) and use
C-x + for counting words (counting is just 1+).

C-x ? can be used for what, if it is at all decided that what-* commands
are worth a key binding.

I would prefer if I could conjure up an image as mnemonic to recall the
exact key sequence to use.
