Its not the same old discussion, its an entirely new suggestion. I mention emacs out of sarcasm, and perhaps a metaphor. Lighten up. It's still a serious suggestion. Notice how *I* have been trying to offer alternatives amenable to both sides, rather than just whining about reverting the change. There have been THREE realistic suggestions for how to retain the functionality without nuking the functionality entirely, while still recognizing that ctl-alt-bs IS possible to accidentally hit. 1) Make the key combo more obscure. ctl-alt-lshift-rshift-bs 2) The SUSE patch, require hitting it twice 3) Enable by default, disable by default once in a user session. All three are independent, and all three can be implemented if you think the X server hasn't been nerfed enough yet.
