Ahh I thought a while it was meant everything that starts with C-c which
would also include C-c C-c as example that explains much :D.

Yes I do that too, but not limited to C-c *. But I understand your
problem now with Sticky keys, well then you would have to press C again
if you want to use C-c C-c as example, Problem solved.

Of course that's important I just don't see how it's clumsy? Let's say
you want or have defined C-c c as a action just do C + c c instead. And
if you want to use C-c C-c you press C + c + C + c.

Nothing changes except you don't have to hold C, you could even have
both paralell, if you press c while you pressed C it's the normal C-c if
you release it in between it counts as the same, but you need to release
it and press it again if you want the sticky C-c C-c or you hold it
through both C-c-c.

I see no real conflict, the only "Problem" I see is that you can't press
C once then press c twice and expect C-c C-c. The stickyness only persists
for 1 letter afterwards.

Does that make sense?
