Stumpwm doesn't use xkb. afaik there's no xkb extension available for
lisp. xkb is huge and complicated so reimplementing it in stumpwm
really isn't a good use of resources. But in this case, it should be
just a matter of figuring out how xkb interprets the keys and doing
the same thing.

I think the long term solution is to implement the xkb extension in
clx and use that. No idea how involved that is.

Neither am I, unfortunately, and X documentation is...confusing.
