(setq mac-command-key-is 'hyper

          mac-control-key-is 'control
          mac-function-key-is 'alt)

Couldn't that implementation be done in src/macterm.c:mac_to_emacs_modifiers?

I agree (after thinking a bit more) that uControl isn't the right
place to handle this.  The only app we want to change the modifiers
for is emacs.  So, it seems like the translation needs to be done in
