I'm trying to configure the snap functionality as how it is in Windows 7. This means I want windows to snap left with Super+Left, and right with Super+Right, rather than

Ctrl+Super+Left and Ctrl+Super+Right, which is how it is set in Ubuntu now.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and I've tried looking in CCSM, but found the 'Grid' plugin and 'Snap' plugin, but they both seem unused (I disabled them, with no further consequences). I also took a look in keyboard shortcuts, dconf and gconf, but couldn't find any bindings out there.

I hope any one here can help me out.

Compiz setting manager was the right track. Look into the "grid" plugin, though; the commands put left and put right are what you are looking for.
