Yep, I found that out :)

I went with xmodmap and being a really lazy person I just copied the
whole configuration from Linux Finnish howto. Works just fine.

Except that the keyboard I'm using (a HP PS2 keyboard) and wscons
give the same keycode for the left Alt and the right Alt (Alt Gr).
This means I can't get @\[]{} on wscons when using encoding=sv and
I had to sacrifice Caps Lock for Alt_L in X. So now I have Mode Switch on
both Alt:s. I've pretty much given up on xkeycaps and just resorted to
xev and xmodmap.
