   I don't this it is ever usefull to talk about a key labeled CAPS LOCK in
   this context.  Anyone who gives such a remapped keyboard to a newbee
   without explaination should be shot.  It's like using a dvorak layout on

I just looked at my current keyboards: all four have the key labeled
Ctrl to the far left of the spacebar.  This position is too painful
for control key use.  If a novice tries Emacs with a control key at
this position he or she will, rightfully, decide against Emacs.
