Traditionally, changing a menu item from Close

finally dawned on me that you might be using some other modifier so I
began trying them all...
Cmd-option-W was already taken (Soft Wrap) when I added the Close All
Tabs, that's why it got control.
I try to keep (toggling) options on cmd-option, so I should probably
leave it as it is, unless I'm shown some sacred AHIG scrolls that
instructs me to do otherwise! ;)
That it has traditionally been option is most likely just because the
priority for an additional modifier is shift -> option -> control.
