I came to the conclusion that it might be easier and less intrusive to
create a new keymap file (e.g. called "ukbd.apple.powerbook") for those
function keys. So they can easily be added to any national keyboard layout.
But I realized that wsconsctl is unable to process a mapping-line with just
one Cmd_*, or a Cmd followed by Cmd_Function in it. When there is no good
reason that those are rejected I will fix it in the wsconsctl-parser now.
