Thanks for your quick response!

I'm essentially looking for modifier key parity with ns ala:


On Windows, that list would probably look like:

    (defvaralias 'pc-allow-anti-aliasing 'pc-antialias-text)
    (defvaralias 'pc-windows-modifier 'pc-windows-modifier)
    (defvaralias 'pc-right-windows-modifier 'pc-right-windows-modifier)
    (defvaralias 'pc-control-modifier 'pc-control-modifier)
    (defvaralias 'pc-right-control-modifier 'pc-right-control-modifier)
    (defvaralias 'pc-alt-modifier 'pc-alt-modifier)
    (defvaralias 'pc-right-alt-modifier 'pc-right-alt-modifier)
    (defvaralias 'pc-function-modifier 'pc-function-modifier)
    (defvaralias 'pc-apps-modifier 'pc-apps-modifier)

And then you could set them using the same contract that I listed in
the opening mail.

Make sense?
