What I then did, was to read the "X PROTOCOL DOCUMENT
ON KEYMAPS" section in
	<http://www.jwz.org/xkeycaps/man.html>
and from what I read there, set the following
keycode mapping:
 keycode 113 = Mode_switch
and not mess about with modifiers at all.

This seems to work so far.  Alexander?  Do you want
my doctored Xmodmap.no?  I don't know who made
the original one, and I don't know how well it
*really* works...:-)
