    So I'm thinking of eliminating the special case that shares the keyboard
    among different X11 connections to the same underlying server: the
    sharing does make sense, but its benefit doesn't seem to justify the
    resulting complexity.

The one real benefit of having a single keyboard has to do
with the locking between keyboards.  The current behavior is correct
in the case of multiple screens with one keyboard.

Also, the fact that many variables (in particular, such as
overriding-terminal-local-map) are keyboard-local is right.
The word "terminal" in the name is misleading, but that means
we should change the name, not change the (correct) behavior.
