I'm torn on it now.  I've adapted to where it is placed on a PeeCee
keyboard now and just use the part of my hand just below the pinky
joint to turn on control.

I'm not convinced it's worse since I can still use all 4 fingers for the keys
while holding down the control key.

And actually, having caps lock down below tends to bug me now since I tend
to accidentally hit it occasionally with my hand.  Hitting control
occasionally by accident doesn't cause a problem since it is not a toggle...
