Well no, Ukelele can't handle modifier keys. So there are 2 other
possible ways, but either is tricky.
Desp [figured out] that you could remap any of the modifiers to any
other. So the first possibility is to map one of the ⌘ keys to
something like "help", and then either a) make help do the thing you
want, or b) figure a way to get the "help" key to trigger another key
event. This has the downside of clobbering whatever the help key was
otherwise going to do, but I think it's worth it.
So I may at some point just change all the completion commands, etc. to
use the help key, and then devote my right ⌘ key to that.
The [other way] is to muck with plist files in the keyboard driver
itself. I haven't tried this, it looks a bit daunting, and I'd imagine
it's a good way to panic your computer or make your keyboard stop
working altogether if you screw something up too much, but it might work
