Comment 210 for bug 221112

I too believe that Andreas' proposal is the right one. It permits people who really want the extra 5th level to be able to easily get it, while not breaking the 99% usual usage.

Just for the record, I had not seen the linuxfr discussion. I guess mostly only people who would want the extra 5th level did realize that it would steal the right control key. If a discussion happened on "are people fine with making the right control key the 5th level modifier by *default*", the result would be quite different, I believe.
