And give the user an easy way to toggle modes between Mac-option and  
meta. If you make it a menu command - something like Toggle Option Key  
Mode - then the user could set whatever command key binding she likes  
for the toggle switch using the Keyboard Shortcuts pane of the  
Keyboard & Mouse Pref Pane. You could make it default to cmd-T as this  
is not currently in use in the IDE.  This way you could use both modes  
and never have your hands leave the keyboard.
