Clients can grab the shortcut. If zapping is enabled though, the server zaps
before the client gets the event and regardless of an client holding the grab.

So there's no reason why the DE couldn't pop up a dialog box in the order
"This shortcut zap the server. Do you want to permanently enable zapping?"
I guess this would be handy for those that prefer zapping instead of hitting
log out (and I am quite guilty of said behaviour myself)

Maybe we could make this more user-friendly by adding a talking paperclip too.

Cheers,
