bug#7458: Distinguishing between left/right command and control keys in

Thanks for that. When I set
to meta, Emacs correctly interprets commands like:
but if I try to use a command like C-M-v, Emacs says:
<C-M-268632086> is undefined.
I presume that OSX is still catching the command key although Emacs can interpret it as meta.

If I set ns-command-modifier to meta I do not have this problem.

Also, if I set ns-right-control-modifier to meta, Emacs does not interpret right control correctly. That is it inteprets
<right control>-v as C-v
C-<right control>-v as C-v
when ns-right-control-modifier is set to meta.

Added to trunk.  As emacs-23 is in prestest, I didn't change there.
Note that Aquaemacs value none corresponds to left in Emacs, see http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=7150 .

This is feature request for OSX users. As of revno 100102, one can set
to change what the right alt key does. I would like to be able to change what
right command does. In particular I would like to be able to set
to give meta but also to allow the operating system to catch left command.

A relevant patch for aquamacs is given at
