Ok.  I would expect lalt+rctrl+backspace would be the same as
ralt+rctrl+backspace.  But I also configured both alts to be the same
on the linux console.  Perhaps this is just because I do not use
accessibility features.

So wouldn't it be better if both alts in the case of the special
features acted the same?

Right, and Arnaud made a package of the xkb plugin.  So anyone should
be able to test it now.  It has the repeater so there is nothing to
spoil the fun.  If anyone has questions about the features, just ask
