It turns out remapping Caps Lock to Esc is apparently not the thing people do anymore. It’s Control again. As always; ignoring trends for long enough will make them go away.
So, I’ll also try remapping Caps Lock to Control, but actually using it this time. Since Control + [ can be used as Escape, that’d result in having Caps Lock as Control, and Caps Lock + [ as Escape.
@oz That’s a great tip, thanks! Tried that with Karabiner-Elements (https://github.com/tekezo/Karabiner-Elements) and a custom modification (https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/complex_modifications/#caps_lock) last night, and it seems nice so far.
The delay is a little too long for my liking, still, but I only run into that when pressing Caps Lock to exit insert mode, and immediately saving with :w in Vim.
