WTF Are You Doing to Your Keyboard?

So, I have yet to upgrade my laptop to Ubuntu Jaunty, but I saw this article on how to re-enable Ctrl+Alt+Backspace in Jaunty come through my feed reader. A little more research dug up this Ubuntu Wiki entry proclaiming: a number of users have complained about accidentally restarting their X-Server Now, maybe I’m getting old, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been saved a reboot by that handy Ctrl+Alt+Backspace shortcut. My rant? What in the hell are you trying to do that you “accidentally kill X” by happening upon hitting that key combination? Was it really so many people that you had to kill the shortcut for everyone? There is a line that can be crossed when listening to your users, and I think Ubuntu has just crossed it. What are your thoughts?
