I really don't like the idea of C-S-C or M3-C as these are really basic
keybinds and may be used for applications. Also the proximity with C-C
makes it easier to terminate a running application when you just wanted
to copy some text.

C-Ins looked like a nice suggestion, even though we are not inserting
text into the application.

So I am not really suggesting anything, I just wanted to point out
these factors.
