My kingdom for a disabled Windows key

How do I disable the left Apple/Windows/"Command" key? Bonus points if I can enable/re-disable quickly.

I use emacs a lot and so use the Alt key a lot. Unfortunately, I plug my laptop into a Windows keyboard at work, and the positions of the Alt and Windows/Apple/"Command" keys are switched.
So whilst running Terminal, I often (for example) pull up the Print dialog box (Apple-P) instead of flipping through shell commands. Frustrating!
I'd like to know if there is a way to disable this Apple/Windows/"Command" key when I come into work, and then re-enable it before I go home.
Is there a way to do this that doesn't involve asking the IT dude for a non-Windows keyboard or buying a regular Apple keyboard out-of-pocket? Thanks for your advice.
