Oh, everybody agrees on this, they just don't agree on what simplicity is 
and how to achieve it.

My idea was that Ctrl+Return would be a key binding of a box being edited, 
not of the canvas, so you wouldn't be able to just select objects and 
press Ctrl+Return. I suppose, Ctrl+Return could also be bound to the 
canvas, but in that case, the origin of the choice of Ctrl+Return is 
meaningless (it's supposed to be a variation on the Return binding of a 
box being edited)

But Chun already did this in a different way which also works for 
connecting to several objects at once and allows to choose the outlet 
number and inlet number.
