Hi all.

I have been making progress.
Still not quite there yet, but I thought the following bits might be
useful for Cygwin ThinkPad users or others without extra keys to be
So here it is: how to make Caps Lock be Hyper in Cygwin...

1. regedit a file with the following contents:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,2a,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00

This makes Windows emit Windows Left key when you press Caps Lock.

2. Reboot (the changes on this registry key only take effect on boot)

3. Change your .xinitrc to setup Hyper:

xmodmap -e "keycode 104 = Hyper_R"
xmodmap -e "add mod3 = Hyper_R"
exec xemacs-21.4.15 -f xwem-init

Hope this helps someone.
