ProShutdown is a free program that restores the "opposite corners" shortcut by listening for Ctrl+F19, and displaying a shut down dialog when these are pressed. It displays a small "F19" icon in the menu bar to remind you that this shortcut is available. Want it gone? Press Ctrl+F18 to hide (or bring back) the icon.
