Now 2-Column mode uses only its primary mnemonic binding prefix `f2'.
And for backward-compatibility still binds `C-x 6' when its package is loaded.

Ergus said that in xterm it is possible to use only C-TAB, but not
C-S-TAB.  I tried, and indeed C-TAB works in -nw, and even C-S-TAB
is available as [backtab].  But maybe this is not on all TTY frames,
where 'C-x 6 o' should be the shortest replacement.
