It should already be possible if you don't mind using external

Using a combination of xdotool and xmodmap you should be able to
make control send a different keycode when emacs is active, so
you can bind a command to it in emacs.

I haven't tried it under X, but that's how I utilize my right
control key (which I wouldn't use otherwise in emacs) on Windows
using autohotkey.
