IIUC this doesn't prevent the usual Xlib decoding of keysym, but
only uses an auxiliary table x-keysym-table to map keysyms
to characters in case where Xlib failed to decode the keysym
(typically because it can't be represented in the user's

I.e. it is similar in behavior to my earlier patch which tried
Xutf8LookupString if XmbLookupString failed (except that your patch
doesn't rely on the deprecated Xutf8LookupString function or any
other extra support in Xlib for that matter).

Is that right ?
