    whatever this key to the left of the space bar is labeled.)

But it _does_ override the M-f command for users who set
`modifier-keys-are-sticky' (in XEmacs, I guess in GNU Emacs there must
be a similar facility using the `event-apply-.*-modifier functions?
but "apropos modifier" doesn't find it).  The interaction with the
equivalent platform facility is not obvious to me, either (especially
if you have an input method active too!)

I like Ben's implementation which makes the behavior user-configurable
(although I wish it were generalizable to keyboard themes).
