Thanks Adrian.  It all sounds pretty good.  Except:

I hope that this is customizable for people such as myself who are more
familiar with Emacs than CUA and who find Apple's command and alt keys
a bit too small and tend to have trouble hitting one of them rather than
other and prefer to map them both to `meta'.

And of course, if the command->Super mapping is not used, these Super
bindings should not appear in the menus (tho it wouldn't matter much
for me).

I looked at the sourceforge page and I couldn't find the sources in
the CVS.  Are you using a revision control system?  If not, why not, and
especially why not just put it all in Emacs's CVS repository?  If yes,
where is it?
