One can also blank a field by pressing <SPC> immediately after tabbing
into it. So C-c <SPC> isn't strictly needed.

(Though since you typically discover you want to blank a field only when
you're actually in it, it can help shave a few seconds off your day that
you'd otherwise use to move out of the field you want to blank and tab
back in ... which is how I've done this until now, being unaware of C-c
<SPC>).

Yours,
Christian
