The problem is that Lennart's proposed solution seems to be the wrong
one.  If you want to rebind the Windows key to a modifier key, the
conceptually correct way to do it should be via a separate program,
separate from Emacs.  That is exactly how it is done on GNU/Linux (where
conventions like Alt-TAB are commonly respected, nowadays).

If there is any technical reason why this cannot be done on Windows, I
have not yet seen anyone argue it.
