Caps lock.

Which, in my case, is mapped to the control-key, as caps-lock is a key I
used probably about three times in my life, everytime by accident.

Always made me wonder, why such an utterly useless key has been given
such a prominent place on modern PC keyboards. Seems someone anticipated
its use in dwm.

Just had an idea: make caps lock your control key the old-skool-way, and
your ex-control key your mod4. There. A solution. Everyone's happy.
