I'm pretty fond of it too, but terminal emulators have always had this
kind of trouble - my favorite "solution" is Apple's, by using the
Command key for GUI app shortcuts, console apps can use Ctrl+
shortcuts and there is no conflict.

Except then you hear about people wanting to change the console apps
to match the GUI shortcuts they're used too...
