the idea is actually to shortcut Force Close by a longer key sequence
which is very unlikely to be hit accidentally or by old habits.

For example, Alt-F2 Alt-F4 to Force Close a window as suggested in the brainstorm item.
Or something like CTRL-F2 CTRL-F4 to Force Close a tab/image in GIMP.

To contrast with Close:
An image with unsaved changes can be closed via 
	CTRL-W  (Close) and
	ALT-W   (Confirm)

The difference to Force Close is that the latter works unconditionally, also
for images whithout unsaved changes. This saves you from thinking about
the saved/unsaved state -- in case you are absolutely sure that the data can be discarded.
