That's an interesting idea. It doesn't interfere with zapping in the X
server if that is enabled, so no technical reason not to do it. We could
alias it to <Alt>+<Shift>+Q (after fixing the latter to log out the user
rather than shutting down the machine), so open activities get closed
with a chance to save their state. The only downside is that it may
teach users that <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<BS> is safe.

Patch welcome. ;)
