I think there is some confusion here. alt (assuming you mean
alternativenyj) and koi8 characters are the same character in Emacs,
in fact they are both internally represented as their respective
Unicode characters in current CVS (in previous versions, they were
mapped to iso-8859-5, but apparently that does not cover the full set
of Cyrillic characters and is seldom used in practice).

It is latin-x characters that are separate.
