Well, this is a Xkb option, and if I'm not entirely mistaken, can be
enabled as well as disabled by setxkbmap, whereas the "old" server zap
did work independently from that, no matter what was set later on.

I beg to differ: ServerFlags Option DontZap "off" is no longer
interpreted (on my system). I have to use XkbOption
"terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp" to make it work.
