I presume it'll have the control key in the right place, to the left
of the "a" key (that's priority number one with an Emacs keyboard).

How many additional modifier keys do you have (even my small HHKB has
two on either side of the spacebar, so I guess four total)?  Besides a
"Meta-" key, you could have dedicated "Super-" and "Hyper-" keys...

[Getting those through the software stack is another issue of course;
presumably just a Small Matter of Programming... :]
