Are the modifier keys (shift, ctrl, alt, meta, super) the only keys that can be remapped? Is there any distinction between right and left modifiers? How do I know what synergy defines as Meta and Super?

I have Win7 as server and OS X as client and a nice, Matias Tactile Pro keyboard. I want to block the Windows key on the Win7 side but have a Command key on the SO X side. I think if I can map the Windows key to "Meta" (or something else innocuous) in Win7, I can have Synergy remap it to Command for OS X.

I'm open to other suggestions.
