Me too!


    Maciek> X11 binds Windows keys as Super modifier, 

Only for recent versions of XFree86.  With previous versions, I needed
to  modify the  config files  to do  that.  And  there isn't  too much
well-formed  documentations for  configuring  the sophisticated  'xkb'
system.

Me too!  And I've been doing it for some 8 years!

And I also bind the otherwise useless "Pause" key on PC keyboards.  ;)


    Maciek> Of course I could use Super bindings with applications but
    Maciek> I don't need to

Well...   few  applications use  the  Super  modifier  in the  default
configuration.  So, it doesn't hurt to reserve it for FVWM.

Yeah.  It takes may be a few hours  to read the FVWM man page and 1 or
2 more hours  to try out the combinations that I  like.  But I've done
this just twice or thrice (when I upgrade to a new version of fvwm and
want to  enjoy the new features) in  the past 8 years.   So, it's only
maybe 20  hours in  8 years.  The  gained productivity of  course pays
that off.
