Partner organization:

We have this long standing issue that ctrl-alt-backspace is exiting the
desktop without much the user can do about it, while every **** web
site asks you if you want to discard random information if you browse
While the zap functionality is useful for some and essential for some
situations, where your X server is broken _and_ the keyboard
combination is not _that_ easy to trigger, shutting it off completely
is not preferred.
So we discussed and what seems reasonable is press once -> beep, press
twice -> zap. Egbert and Luc say this can be implemented in the X
server and then we can leave the option on by default.

If this feature can't be implemented by let's say alpha 2 due to other
constraints, I would like to change the default to not zapp for beta1.

#2: michl@xxxxxxxxxx (2007-11-27 14:41:40)
fully in agreement with coolo. Do it with few effort asap or leave it.

+ Sounds like extortion to me. Not nice. And won't help in the end.
+ People will complain again and we need to revert it again.
