These variables are less than perfect.  I already forgot what the
problem is, but I do remember that someone sent a message about it and
I was convinced that he was right.


Ah!  Perhaps you want two keys to be meta.  You can't do this with the
variable x-meta-keysym.  But you could set both mac-command-key-is and
mac-function-key-is to `meta'.  So the way Doug suggests is better.

I think that was the argument.

I think it would be good if the variables x-*-keysym were also
replaced with a similar mechanism.  I can't promise that I find the
time, though.
