Ctrl-Alt-Backspace is widely offered in help guidance:

This is the most sensible suggestion I've heard.

Alberto: would you will to offer up a patch that forces a hold-for-5-seconds
requirement with no other keys being pressed in the meantime?

This would:
 * fix the root problem
 * without breaking the currently defined behaviour
 * without needing a configuration option

Nota Bene: we should probably do this for Ctrl-Alt-Del too.
