I wanted to do something similar in order to have a general-purpose
prefix key on the right hand side of the keyboard. (I strongly prefer to
use opposite hands for the modifier(s) and they keys themselves. So
`C-c` or `C-x r` are fine, but I'm not a big fan of e.g. `C-x o`. This
is primarily a "preference" thing, although I do think that using
opposite hands is more ergonomic than not).

What I settled on for now is to steal C-h. I actually use the help
commands quite a bit, but I find <f1> to be "good enough" for accessing

If you don't mind, let us (the list) know what you settle on - I'm
always interested to hear about Emacs users' key binding innovations.

You're welcome! I'm glad it helped.
