Another little data point that occurs to me - several of the M-S-num
combinations are already bound (e.g. on my keyboard:
M-S-1 generates M-! -> shell-command
M-S-5 generates M-% -> query-replace
and so on) - whilst the same isn't true of C-S-num. So whilst I'm a
C-num user out of habit, it strikes me that it might be more "logical"
to use the C-num keys for Ben's functions (which sound so handy that
I've gone away and cons'd up their moral equivalent for myself :)
