Re: System setting for changing modifier keys?

gnome-tweak-tool seems to work somewhat well, although it has a few
rough edges when run under Unity (transparent window making the labels
hard to read, for instance), and doesn't support swapping Caps and
Control (only Caps and Escape), but it does work and it gives you a
fair number of remapping options.

It would really be nice to have something like that available from the
standard Keyboard or Text Entry settings.
