Comment(by ken@…):

 Thanks for the info.  I've been using setxkbmap in .xinitrc (so, on a per-
 user basis).
 setxkbmap -option "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

 To pass Control-C to the server, I assume you have to be in the login
 xterm ?  Similarly, Control-Alt-F1 will need to be followed by Control-C
 to kill the server ?

 I think the version currently in the book is supposed to still accept
 Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, this is only for newer releases in the 1.7 series or
