Hmmm. My previous message was wrong. With `w32-recognize-altgr' I
*can* type \, ], etc., for example LCtr-AltGr-+ produces ].

So it seems like, at least on Windows,

  - with w32-recognize-altgr = nil
   LCtrl + AltGr + key produce uncommon chars: []\|@#{}€ (in Spanish kbd)
   There's no way to produce Ctrl/Meta versions of them

  - with w32-recognize-altgr = t
   AltGr + key produce uncommon chars
   AltGr + RCtrl + key produce Ctrl/Meta versions of them
I think there's no doubt that w32-recognize-altgr = t is needed, at
least on some language environments. Emacs would be unusable to me if
I had to do LCtrl-AltGr-` every time I wanted to type a [.

So perhaps we should simply document all this in some W32-specific
node of the info files.
