I'm not sure I understand John Mastro & Tim Johnson are trying to
achieve here.  However, there are a few keys that are much less trouble
to use:

* C-' C-# C-. C-, C-; C-=.
Undefined by default.

* C--, C-1, C-2,..., M--, M-1, M-2, ....
These are duplicates.  If you like you can use one set of them and
redefine the other.  Notice that C-4 & M-4 are almost useless since
in most circumstances they do the same thing as C-u.

* M-o.
This isn't very useful unless you use enriched-mode.

* M-s.
The existing M-s prefix key doesn't have very much in it.  Eventually the
Emacs maintainers will put more in no-doubt, but until then you can put
a few things in it.

* C-c X.
This is left as the default user-defined prefix key.

Some of these don't work in terminals, I don't know which ones because I
don't use terminals.
