As I prefer mod4, the Windows key for things like this, I found that I
can change that too.  Now, the .xinitrc reads

exec evilwm -bw 0 -term aterm -mask1 mod4

(Case is important and must follow their man page.)  This gives me an
aterm if I hit the windows key and return, enables me to move the window
around with mod4 and vi keystrokes, and gives me a borderless aterm.  

Now, I'm trying to see if one can also bind keystrokes to open
applications. If I can, I might even switch.
