The main problem with the availability of the shortcut is that if it's even 
potentially used for a standard action, it can't be used in applications.

And for me, this whole debate is like politics. I disagree with a lot of 
decisions that politicians make, because i find them wrong. I rarely see 
things go the way I prefer, but that does not make those decisions right. 
Probably, we *will* end up with c-y eaten for redo, just because it's used 
for that by a company that probably want KDE to disappear. That does not make 
it a good/better decision.
