I complained about half a year ago, and so xkeymap was added :) But
you're right, surpisingly few people seem to have keyboard problems in

Ah, yes, even better than adding different tables to xwin.c. On
platforms other than X, the additional [xkeymap] section in
<language>.cfg would just be ignored. Now we'd just have to try if it
really works, add an [xkeymap] section to the <languages>.cfg files, and
add code in xwin.c to read it.
