Code:
xmodmap -e "remove Lock = Caps_Lock" # Remove Caps Lock
xmodmap -e "keycode 66 = BackSpace" # Make the key into Backspace

I use

Code:
setxkbmap -option caps:backspace

for that (in my xinitrc).

I also have set myself a "Compose Key" on Super_R, so I can Super_R+a+" to ä, Super_R+c+/ to ¢, etc. with:

Code:
setxkbmap -option compose:rwin

Thank you for that. I had mapped it to 'Escape' before, but since I also have that on 'jj' in vim backspacing the key makes even more sense.

No problem. It's actually the default behavior for the Colemak layout.

Did I start a new trend?

Until they open up vim and realize... shit...
