You are right. My way of doing this is:
Write a ".xmodmap" file for your keyboard with "xkeycaps". Then exchange
"Escape" with "Caps_Lock". After this you have to install the new keymap
with "xmodmap ~/.xmodmap" (or the name you gave the ".xmodmap" file).
This last step you have to do each time you start the X-Server and can
be automated in your ~/.xinitrc or your ~/.xsession depending on the
startup of your X-Session.

Trust me, I'm a lawyer..
you ask why? here it's now Tuesday, December 03, 2002 05:33!
