lockcaps.el 0.4

I'm trying to get lockcaps.el to work for LEIM users.  It appears to work
for me using the french-azerty input method on GNU Emacs 21.

Any comments, fixes and improvements are much appreciated.

;;; Commentary:

;; Whilst playing with Hemlock on CMU Common Lisp I did:
;;      M-x apropos lock
;; and the first match was:
;; "Caps Lock Mode\n  Simulate having a CAPS LOCK key."
;; What a neat idea.  A Google search for capslock.el garnered:
;; capslock.el, a quick and dirty Emacs 19 caps-lock minor mode
;; by Eberhard Mattes <address@hidden>
;; dated 19-May-1993.
;; It had been done already.  Rats.  Anyway, this is my version.
;; This version implements a minor-mode keymap rather than changing 
;; the global keymap.  It doesn't need special minibuffer precautions.
;; If you (setq lockcaps-all-keys t) before loading, all self-inserting 
;; keys are upcase-d, and LEIM methods might work.

;;; Code:

(defvar lockcaps-mode nil
  "Mode variable for lockcaps minor mode.")
(make-variable-buffer-local 'lockcaps-mode)

(defvar lockcaps-all-keys nil
  "Non-nil means include all self-inserting keys, and some others,
in `lockcaps-mode-map'.")

(defvar lockcaps-mode-map nil
  "Keymap for lockcaps minor mode.")

(unless lockcaps-mode-map
  (setq lockcaps-mode-map (make-keymap))
  (if lockcaps-all-keys
         'self-insert-command 'lockcaps-self-insert
         lockcaps-mode-map global-map)
        ;; brain-damage follows...
        (let ((key 129))
          (while (< key 256)
            (global-set-key (vector key) 'lockcaps-self-insert)
          (setq key (1+ key)))))
    (let ((keys
           '(?a ?b ?c ?d ?e ?f ?g ?h ?i ?j ?k ?l ?m 
                ?n ?o ?p ?q ?r ?s ?t ?u ?v ?w ?x ?y ?z)))
      (while keys
        (define-key lockcaps-mode-map
          (char-to-string (car keys)) 'lockcaps-self-insert)
        (setq keys (cdr keys))))))

(or (assq 'lockcaps-mode minor-mode-map-alist)
    (setq minor-mode-map-alist
          (cons (cons 'lockcaps-mode lockcaps-mode-map) 
(or (assq 'lockcaps-mode minor-mode-alist)
    (setq minor-mode-alist
          (cons '(lockcaps-mode " CAPS") minor-mode-alist)))

(defun lockcaps-mode (&optional arg)
  "Toggle lockcaps minor mode."
  (interactive "P")
  (setq lockcaps-mode
        (if (null arg)
            (not lockcaps-mode)
          (> (prefix-numeric-value arg) 0)))

(defun lockcaps-self-insert (arg)
  "Insert a character in upper case."
  (interactive "*p")
  (setq last-command-char (upcase last-command-char))
  (self-insert-command arg))

(provide 'lockcaps)
;;; lockcaps.el ends here
