Personally, I never user use `open-line'.
I actually don't know what I do instead:
`C-a RET', perhaps?

But I do have `C-o a' undefined, so I'll put
`open-line' there, and perhaps this "opens"
a door to a new world of editing proficiency :)

If you use C-o for `open-line' all the time,
obviously it is not a good prefix key, unless
you can assign `open-line' another shortcut
just as good, and then reprogram your
brain/fingers, of course.

As for C-z, I like that even less than I like
C-c, for all the same reasons I dislike C-c
*plus* it involves the little finger (compared
to the index finger) and the keys are even
closer than C-c where they are too
close already.
