Excellent idea.3. Just do what OpenSUSE did and implement the X-WARNING Beep. The system alarm beeps twice and waits for an intermittent 1-2 seconds for the keys to be unpressed. If the keys remained pressed, it resets the X server.
Losing data is no fun. But would people be so smart as to let go of the keys?? Likely they would just keep on holding them down. A new key combination might be better such as 'cntrl-alt-end'
IMHO, it would be really great if we are able to get that opensuse patch and use it.
Of course after they do implement it so its less annoying to users.

I have to admit, I have accidentally hit the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace about five times. The reason is because I changed the Ctrl+Alt+Arrow to switch desks to Ctrl+Alt+Plus or Ctrl+Alt+Minus. This is my fault and I own that. Hitting the reset button is the more drastic step. I really hate to do it, and on the odd occasion where my computer has just started to go reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally slow, I don't want to kill my PC. It's really hard to log out of a computer session when you can't see your mouse for five minutes every time you move it. I really would miss this keyboard shortcut.
Another round of Ubuntu for my friends here!
Fighting to bring Pink back to The Pink Ponies archive.
I don't care one way or the other, as long as it's configurable.
So, with that in mind, ship with it off, those who are smart enough to know about it, will be smart enough to re-enable it.
I don't feel all that strongly about this decision - it was made upstream after all (not that that makes it right of course), but it's just another thing to remember after a new install.
Makes LinuxMint look more and more attractive. I just tried Felicia and I'm pretty impressed. It's not perfect, but it cuts down on the post install tweaks/dross by a fair bit.

I think they should disable it...
...immediately after they make X so solid that you'll never, ever need to kill it again.
