Re: redefine the $%$%// caps-lock key to something useful?

I dont know how to do it from XF86Config, but I have the following
in my .xmodmaprc which is loaded from my .xsession with the command
"xmodmap $HOME/.xmodmaprc":

clear Lock
clear Control
add Control = Control_L Control_R Caps_Lock

This does away with caps lock altogether (I never use it), and makes the
caps lock key another control key.
