Save your Emacs finger before it's too late

I’m serious! Mine almost died! I am of course talking about the left little finger. Do yourself a favor and save your finger (and be faster, which is the meaning of life) by switching Ctrl and Caps Lock. Put this in ~/.xmodmap:

remove Lock = Caps_Lock
remove Control = Control_L

keysym Control_L = Caps_Lock
keysym Caps_Lock = Control_L

add Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Control_L

And then put this line in ~/.bash_profile:

xmodmap ~/.xmodmap

I takes a while getting used to. But it cant be worse than learning to use C-n, C-p, C-f, C-b, M-f, M-b, etc… instead of using the arrows, which you do use, right?
