What we really need is some sort of more general user preferences. I don't
see a reason for hardwiring Ctrl-x in contrast to the current Cmd-x (btw,
I'm really used to the Windows 3.1 style 'shift-del' command). These
preferences could be set automatically on system startup for the current
host platform and should include a lot more than just shortcuts (even though
they're obvious candidates).
