Ah, one has to love user interfaces designed with mnemonic keyboard 
commands so as to minimize the burden of rote learning on the user. 
Presumably it is G for "Get me the frack outta here!".

Having noted that the word "Quit" does appear, how do you then *actually* 
Quit? Apart from taunting the user, what is it that Ctrl-G is actually 
doing when it displays the word "Quit" in what seems to be some sort of 
status bar?
