Caps lock is sometimes useful.  E.G when typing SQL or Lisp code --
I don't like to have to hold shift when typing keywords (well, maybe
I could do Emacs tricks like `turn preceding n words to
uppercase'... well... *click* C-h i g (emacs)...).  While both these
languages are case-insensitive so I could just use lowercase, I prefer
to stay consistent wrt style with code written by respective language
gurus.
