Yes, give a try to xmodmap. Enclosed is a configuration to remove the
caps_lock key and rebind it to the most useful 'Undo/Redo' feature
(yeah I didn't use the caps_lock key before and now, a undo/redo is
most accessible :))

,----[ .xmodmap ]
| ! No Caps Lock
| remove Lock = Caps_Lock
| keysym Caps_Lock = Undo Redo
| keycode 115 = Super_L
| clear Mod4
| add Mod4 = Super_L
