Evaluate the following code:

(global-set-key "\C-q" 'keyboard-quit)

Then do a C-x C-e on the following form:

(while t)

You will see that the only way to break out of the infinite loop is to
press C-g.  Note that C-q doesn't work in spite of the above binding
of C-q.  I assume that the reason C-q doesn't work is because of a
design oversight of the creators of Emacs.
