Hi, the sticky SHIFT key can be obtained by adding the following lines to the first block in "/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us" :

    key <LFSH> {
        symbols[Group1]=[ ISO_Level2_Latch]
    modifier_map Shift { Shift_L, ISO_Level2_Latch};
Unfortunately, this seems to be buggy because it sends some escape character that makes crazy programs like vi or ssh when entering passphrases. Any ideas how to fix this?

PS: I've re-mapped CAPS->ESC, SHIFT+CAPS->'\' SHIFT+TAB -> '>' and SHIFT+ENTER -> '|' (the ';' and ':' are as the engraving on the keyboard says). I have most of my daily commands covered, although the lack of symmetry for '<' does annoy me a bit.
