So I had this great idea yesterday (for coders, at least): remap [shift+space] to [underscore]. Turns out I am far from the first to think of this, which only enforces its awesomeness as an idea.

Mac: Put this in ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict:

	/* turn shift + space into underscore */
	"$ " = ("insertText:", "_");

Linux: for a PC keyboard, try:

xmodmap -e 'keycode 65 = space underscore'

or on a mac keyboard:

xmodmap -e 'keycode 57 = space underscore'

Or if neither of those work, run:

xmodmap -pk | grep space | awk '{print $1}'

and use that number instead of 65 or 57 above.

You can put this keybinding in ~/.xmodmaprc or somesuch if you like it.
