I am trying to say that this is not guaranteed to work. Some key
combinations are strictly not allowed by w32 to be used by
applications.

And I think I misremembered. I am not sure if it can work with a low
level keyboard hook either.

There is not very much that we can do to guarantee that it works. If
it works it works a bit by chance. Next patch from MS may stop it from
working.

But you are right, if it works for you with the old versions of Emacs
there might be a way to fool w32 here.
