karabiner 0.91.3 caps lock to ctrl when chorded or esc when pressed alone
// modified from http://brettterpstra.com/2017/06/14/full-hyper-key-functionality-restored-in-sierra/
// this makes caps lock turn into "left control" if pressed with another key
// and "escape" if pressed by itself. Requires karabiner elements 0.91.3 or higher to have
// the "to_if_alone" section. Place after "simple_modifications" in the ~/.config/karabiner/karabiner.json file
