I find it more useful to bind ctrl+q to quoting rather than quitting.
The reasons are as follows:

  - I never quit DrScheme
  - I already know ctrl+q from Emacs
  - ctrl+q for quitting isn't standard in Windows
    (at least it doesn't work in Word -
     normally alt+f4 is used for quitting)
  - quitting is done only once in a session, so having
    a short keybinding doesn't save any time
