I don't understand the question.  And which
command?  Are you asking how to use `M-q'

Are you saying that even though Emacs has kept
`dired-do-query-replace-regexp' it's no longer
usable for some reason?

> We didn't just change the binding of Q without a good reason.

So you say.  I've already disagreed that the
reason given was a good one.  IMHO, the new
command should have been given a new key.

Regardless of whether the existing key `Q'
should have been usurped, its previous command
still exists, and it seems to still be usable
and useful.  If so, what is wrong with giving
it its own key binding (`M-q' in my case)?
