Before OS X 10.4, I used uControl to remap caps lock to control. I also remapped the mostly useless enter key (on my Tibook, it’s to the left of the space bar) to command. 10.4 added built-in caps lock remapping, and uControl is no longer maintained. Enter went back to being useless, except in TextMate.

DoubleCommand has been around for years, but I just recently found out about it (i.e., bothered to search for it). Now I’ve got my right command key (closed apple?) back. It’s very handy for going back in a web browser, since it’s close to the arrow keys.
