When I VNC into a Mac I find that the "Windows key" becomes the
Command key. And the same probably happens when you plug a non-Apple
USB keyboard into a Mac.
If you are using a keyboard with a "Windows key" then that would be
the most natural option. If you don't have that key then you really
need to map something else...
