Description Tom Tromey 2001-12-21 22:27:04 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16 i686)

Description of problem:
Today I edited a .spec file using GNU Emacs 20.7.1.
I found out that rpm-spec-mode redefines C-u to be a prefix command,
and then binds C-u C-c TAB to `rpm-change-tag'.
The Emacs standard is that major modes can only put new bindings
on "C-c FOO", where FOO is itself a control character (in particular
"C-c LETTER" is reserved for the user).
C-u is globally bound to universal-argument.  I use it all the time.
Rebinding it in this way is, I believe, incorrect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Emacs
2. C-x C-f /tmp/foo.spec
3. C-u n   should insert 4 "n"s, but instead beeps
