using xmodmap :) also, you can do some creative file copying in the
/etc/xkb directories, using the ca and ca_enhanced keymaps (? or are
those key symbols? whatever) and setting your X86Config(-4) to use
macintosh, then ca, then re-map any others with xmodmap if need be. as a
base i used the PC-105 kbd map, then edited some of the keys for my
ca_CSA ADB keyboard layout.
oh btw, the "racetrack" key is called either apple key or command key.
