I've always found it amusing that it takes a more convoluted key
sequence to disconnect a hung ssh session (\n~.) then it does to kill
X, and I've longed for a way to get something similar to the Hayes
attention command delay (is that still patented? :) ) for X
termination.

totally unrelated to emacs over the years; and whom has not had
working zap for some time due to xmodmap swapping left-ctrl and
capslock apparently breaking it)
