I'd like to swap the shift key with the / key. Ukelele says that it can't be used to change modifier keys. DoubleCommand has static settings that you can either enable or disable. It doesn't let you chose your own custom bindings, and needless to say, this remapping I want isn't available.

Nice! It let's you modify a Private.xml file and map your own keybindings which is exactly what I did to make it work. – Senseful Jan 29 '11 at 23:21
