Remap Caps Lock to Control and Escape on Mac OS X

Note to future self:

  1. Remap Caps Lock to Control in the Keyboard preference pane.
  2. In KeyRemap4MacBook, check Control L to Control L (+ When you type Control L only, send Escape).

Now, hitting Caps Lock alone will escape while holding it down and hitting another key will act as Control.
