On a German keyboard with default bindings, those are both 3 keys each,
which are rather awkward to press: Shift+Control+7 and Shift+Control+-.

By that counting, C-x u is three keys, too, sorry.  It is less awkward
than the others.

I'm inconsistent with the counting because in most cases, I don't make
much difference between pressing a key together with or without a
modifier.  But when it becomes awkward, it does make a difference, and
the awkward part of C-x u is not the C-x but the u.  With the others,
all of it is awkward and they are definitely 3 keys :)

I guess this is how we learn to count to 3 eventually ;)
