At least, the JIS version of Apple Magic Keyboard, which is quite
common in Japan, does not have the right alt/option key.


With this keyboard, you cannot enter '\' without the option key in the
default Japanese setting on all versions of OS X as far as I know.
And that even applies to the US keyboard if you use the default
Japanese setting on OS X 10.11!

Also, the left and right modifiers cannot be distinguished via Screen
