I see. I expect that would be a hazardous and/or fragile thing to
attempt on X, especially if, as I believe, the latching behavior is a
hardware feature on some (most?) keyboards. On Windows you could
circumvent this by meddling with the keyboard drivers, but I think we
want to avoid getting that intrusive. So we should probably consider
CapsLock to be an always-latching key, IMO.
In Windows, Jaws manages to prevent the capslock key from being latched
or unlatched. To latch/unlatch, you press shift + Capslock, or press
capslock twice quickly.
