Default command key under X11

Why don't we change the default command key under X11 to Control?

My reasoning is that the most important uses of keyboard modifiers (by far) are 
the CUA key combinations like ctrl+c for copy, ctrl-v for paste, ctrl+z for 
undo, etc., and since every other X11 toolkit uses the Control key for these by 
default, I think GS should as well. It's really jarring to have to switch 
between Ctrl when using non-GNUstep apps and Alt when using GS apps. I know you 
can configure this using user defaults, but we should be using settings that 
fit in with gtk/qt by default, I think. Thoughts?
