Well, at least in my emacs setup, the only package that I use and
binds C-c [a-z] is ess... here is the documentation I found on emacs
key binding convention:

specifically: "Don't define C-c letter as a key in Lisp programs.
Sequences consisting of C-c and a letter (either upper or lower case)
are reserved for users; they are the only sequences reserved for
users, so do not block them. Changing all the Emacs major modes to
respect this convention was a lot of work; abandoning this convention
would make that work go to waste, and inconvenience users. Please
comply with it."

But then I wouldn't know how recent this conversion of all emacs major
modes is...

and thanks for the snippet.
