Use Autohotkey to remap the left shift to ( and the right shift to ), but I still want to to use either of the shift keys with other keys.

So if I tap the left shift, I'd like ( to appear. If I hold left shift and tap a, I'd like A.

The reason for using autohotkey is that I'm already using it to remap my keyboard.
