Is this what you want:

| 57.4.11 Disabling Commands
| --------------------------
| Disabling a command means that invoking it interactively asks for
| confirmation from the user.  The purpose of disabling a command is to
| prevent users from executing it by accident; [...]

For example, I have this in my macbook ~/.emacs

| ;; get rid of pesky aquamacs-save-buffers-kill-emacs binding
| (put 'aquamacs-save-buffers-kill-emacs  'disabled 
|      "Use C-x C-c to quit\n")
| (put 'aquamacs-print 'disabled "Why print?\n")

To protect against the commands bound to clover-p and clover-q being
inadvertently run when what I really wanted was M-p or M-q. (The clover
key sits next to the 'M-' on my keyboard.)
