To recap, my opinion is this:
- - keys should do what the label says, no shifting things around to
match PC layouts

so that should be the (hopefully only ) exception
Already works that way, because the right Alt key has the same
AltGr on USB keyboards.
- - left/right Command key should become left/right Meta
Already works that way, because the USB keycodes match.
Still we have no AltGr on Apple notebooks with just a left Alt.
Should ukbd.c, or even wskbd.c be hacked to treat Ctrl-Alt as AltGr?
Although I wouldn't like it to press three keys at once, just for a
\ or [.
I don't get this whole argument. If someone feels the need to have
AltGr mapped to (for instance) the CMD key on a Apple notebook, he
can just change it that way with xmodmap anyway. Why do we need to
try to fiddle around with the base system itself to try and
accomodate all kind of wishes?
Trivial wishes like being able to type an @ on a german keyboard
without having to start X and mucking with xmodmap.
