(The only problem I found is that if I use PowerPro to enable me to
Win-click into a window to drag it around (I hate it that you have to
hit the title bar in Windows), then allSnap doesn't do its thing, and
the window doesn't snap.  A pity.)

No, but see:

It's a German page, but I'll give you the highlights:

You need to enable Javascript.  Scroll down to look for the button
amidst the text.  Click it.  You get a new window with a keyboard.
Click the key to change.  It will blink.  Now click the meaning of
the key to change.  Repeat for all keys to change.  Click the button
labeled "Fertig".  You'll get a page with the *.reg file: cut and
paste it into some *.reg file, double-click that file, and Bob's your

For example, I have told the escape key to behave like a caps-lock
key, so I clicked on escape first, then on caps-lock.

Also be sure to download deleteKeyDefs.reg to undo the effect of the
*.reg file you just saved.

If you use the program again to add a new key definition, you also
must click through all the old definitions; you can't load two *.reg
files one after the other to get the effect you want.  You have to
create one *.reg file with all the changes you want.
