It seems the 'Fn' key sends a scancode and flags solely for amusement for the KeyCaps program, but the OS doesn't do shit with it. When you actually use the Fn modifier key, it seems the keyboard is doing the translation, not the OS...

But this might be good. I can still steal the Fn scancode to make it be Ctrl when I want, but still be Fn on things like PageUp/PageDown. Er, but those fucking number keys are on 789, UIOP, JKL, and M. Blah.

I was excited about that key as Ctrl too. :/

Oh well, at least I'll have my Cmd key being Alt.

Must do more reading/playing.

Update: I think there's hope. Good possibility exists I'm on crack.
