Btw, emacs package for sticky modifier is not necessary on the Mac.

In the Mac, just go to your System Preference, click on the Universal
Access (i.e. for the handicapped), and there you can setup sticky keys
system wide.

Mac has this before OSX too, since about early 1990s i think. (Also,
you can swap any modifiers to any other in OSX. Just go to sys pref,
keyboard & mouse, keyboard, modifier. For more detail, see
How to Swap Modifier Keys on OS X
http://xahlee.org/emacs/osx_swapping_modifier_keys.html
)

On OSX, you can actually setup arbitrary commands to keys much like
how you rebind keys in emacs. (However, they only work in Cocoa apps
and not perfectly.). See

-----------------

On Windows, i thought sticky key pref exist that are part of the
Windows OS, but i haven't used Windows for many years now. Doesn't it
exist as part of the OS, Lennart?
