This is a shot of the key-assign tab for the Digital Voice Editor sw that comes with Sony's digital voice recorders. When the "transcribing keys" are enabled, you can use the Win key as a modifier for all the usual primary keys. When enabled, these key combinations can be used from with any program to control the Sony sw (eg, start and stop playback for transcription while staying inside a word processor.)

Based on this, it seems that the Win key could indeed be used (at least on its own) as another modifier.

I've downloaded AHK a number of times over the years (pre-Reaper and post) but have never really taken to it... the "two different environments" that you mention.

Custom menus, in 3.13pre6, will also extend assignability to commands and actions/macros. Yay!

Reaper is probably the most customizable specialty app I've ever used. Rock on JCS, SWS, and Xenakios.
