Is disabling ctrl-alt-backspace really such a good idea?

No SysRQ key is not a kernel bug.

Nice trick for a laptop user.

Oh, and since laptops have been outselling desktops for several years, it
probably won't be long before laptops in use outnumber desktops in use, if
they don't already.

Release notes probably should direct users to shortly after install, pay a
visit to a virtual console, to see if it's even possible to login there. In
recent releases it's all too possible that that is not the case. Ctrl-Alt-F#
won't do those users any good.
