It's understandable the passions this would inspire in those who use the
option frequently. That's why I think we should either preserve the
option, or remove it, but definitely leave an expert way to set it. But
that is not the same as a GUI option. If ctrl-alt-backspace is something
that upstream believes was a mistake, or results in less usable
software, then we would need to have a VERY strong belief in it to
preserve it. That's ok if people want to preserve it, but not OK to
force a new choice on otherwise-oblivious users.
