I use Caps Lock as my window manager key since I don't have any other
use for it:

    xmodmap -e "remove mod4 = Hyper_L" \
            -e "remove Lock = Caps_Lock" \
            -e "keysym Caps_Lock = Hyper_L" \
            -e "add mod3 = Hyper_L"

I know a lot of Vimmers like to map caps to escape, but I use "qq"
instead of escape.
