Considering what ctrl+alt+del does, I *want* to have to do it
deliberately. I had a keyboard with a power switch on one key
once. I pulled its cap.
The combination is pretty harmless nowadays. But given the original
"get me out of the shit" function it would have been appropriate to
assign it to the Escape key.
