Suggestion: make control-alt-delete bring up system monitor by default

I don't think this is a good idea. 

I used to have ctrl-alt-delete to lock the screen and while it's very
simple to reach it's also very simple to accidentaly get to it.  In
text-mode this reboots the machine. I happened to reboot it a number
of times by mistake.

If this is done make ctrl-alt-del to reboot is disabled in text-mode.
