Heh.  Of course ...

I think I could make a very convincing argument regarding the modifier
keys here being urgent.  If it was only rendering the hyper key
useless, then maybe you could argue it as not being urgent, but it's
not merely that ... any attempt to assign the hyper function to any
other key (e.g. right alt), just adds the hyper function instead of
replacing the previous function with that.  So if left alt is meta and
you set right alt as hyper, it just becomes a combined hyper-meta.
It's no longer possible to set the hyper key on its own.

Which means the code commentary about changing the nil to none for all
those ns modifier keys is, in fact, completely wrong.  You *do* want nil
there because if you're re-assigning the key to perform another task
you actually do want to clear the original setting out of it.

As for a stable fix, that's dead simple, roll back everything from the
2016 commit that was merged into master on the 5th and it's done.

Anyway, I've got to wander off to one of those other pressing things
and since it involves a wee small hospital visit, it takes priority.
I'll try to take another look at this beast a little later.
