I was hoping that something like this

     (make-composed-keymap view-mode-map
will put `view-mode-map' on top of the keymap stack and thus overwrite
paredit's bindings.

I see that DEL (backspace) key is shared between view-mode and paredit.
My little experimentation that the above snippet failst to produce the
effect expected by me.

Do you think I am reading the doc of the APIs (used above) incorrectly?
