Free modifier key assignment (OS X)

Here is the latest version of mac-modifier-keys patch, which allows people to freely assign modifier keys on their keyboard to Emacs modifiers.

The current solution is overly complicated and doesn't allow certain combinations of settings such as Command->Hyper (while saying Option- >Meta). The reasoning behind it is described here.


Note that any xmodmap solution people may think of will not work on OS X when using Carbon - OS X doesn't normally use X11 for its graphics output.

I would like to recommend applying this now before the release is readied, because otherwise one will have to change customization options that get documented in the release. The present patch allows for longer-term stability. (It is backwards-compatible to cater for the many people who've been installing CVS Emacs.)
