This is an appropriate issue, and the patch to handle it, independent of
the rebinding-the-Windows-key feature, would be welcome.

You misunderstand the purpose of Lennart's patch. The ability to rebind the windows and alt keys on w32 is already there, and has been since about 1996. Lennart's patch allows the user to forcibly reclaim keys that are being used for system wide functions, in a way that works for all keys (we already have a function that can reclaim some of those, but not Alt-Tab or some of the Windows key bindings). Lennart's patch is useful for users who continue to use the default of Alt bound to Meta as well as users who would prefer to move meta to one or both windows keys.
