the trouble is nobody can agree whether `command == meta' is `wrong'
or not.  

given the option key is the one with `alt' engraved on it one would
presume it should be treated as alt, regardless of the fact that apple
put it in the wrong place.

one could probably say the same for Sun keyboards and thier
caps-lock/control key placement.
