I don't think this is "abuse" of `key-translation-map' because the
original poster is working on a "foreign" keyboard (finish). He has
dead keys and wants a work around for these. He has devised his own
way to do this, I just helped him with the map to use. I think this
map can be used by "users" as well as "developers" (packages).

Ehud.
