I guess Ethan isn't on this list, so...
As I said before, "XkbModel" "macintosh" is broken for me, I need to use
This configuration 'works' for them because Xkb is in fact disabled:
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Error: Can't find file "macintosh/macintosh" for symbols include

This actually works for me:
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "macintosh_old"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
We'll hopefully soon be able to use the "pcxxx" model anyway.
