It'd be nice if I could submit a form from a textarea (akin to the way one can use "enter" in regular one-line "text" fields) ... Ctrl+Enter seems to be a canonical way to submit something from a multiline field that I've seen in other applications.

Reproducible: Always
It's too easy to hit Ctrl+Enter accidentally while trying to paste (Ctrl+V) right before or right after adding a line break.  I guess Ctrl+Enter could submit after showing a Thunderbird-style confirmation dialog, but I'm not a big fan of confirmation dialogs.

What's wrong with hitting Tab and then Enter?
