Ah yes, this brings up a point: *Don't* use Alt=(bit 0x80)! This won't  
work for most people (anybody that needs more than ASCII).

It's been a bad idea from the start.

And don't do this as a standard feature, either - CapsLock is bad enough  
on its own, but switching it with Ctrl would make a keyboard just about  
unusable for me. The way I type, CapsLock is just about out of reach for  
every finger.
