Isn't the shortcut now shift-caps to change keyboard layouts?  Finally
there is a use for the caps lock key, which has been wrongfully
occupying the nice, ergonomic space the control key originally had.  But
it is possible to set it back to alt-shift if you select the "Keyboard
Layout Handler" settings by right-clicking on it.
