That patch/idea is certainly not right. You're mixing up the SDL scan
codes with the Atari scan codes here, that's two completely different
number spaces. "y" with scan code "0x79" is certainly an SDL scan code,
on the Atari side, the "y" key normally has scan code 0x15 instead
(unless you're on a German keyboard, where it is 0x2c, I think).

If you want to help to improve keyboard mapping, you should likely
rather help to get these patches here into a better shape:

Not sure whether this will help with the problem from the reporter on, too, though.
