Once I finish mine, I'll put it up wherever you're putting it up too,
mine's basically based on the same idea, except that I don't have a
Meta4(windows) key on my keyboards.

I have the following in my xorg.conf:
Option "XkbOptions"  "ctrl:swapcaps"

It swaps the left control & Caps_Lock, so it basically ends up as the
original IBM keyboards. ( I realy wonder why they switched them, I
rarely use Caps_Lock, while I use the Ctrl key a lot. )

Some people also switch ~ and Esc (probably mainly vi users), but I
prefer to keep ~ where it is, as I can, and do, use ^[ for Escape.
