Binding the Alt key to the end goal is the logical solution.  Your answer would 
be the BEST one if I could get it to work.  The problem is I got burned out 
trying to make Emacs understand the lone Alt key by itself.

Peter's solution was to outsource the Alt keybinding to the desktop.  By 
avoiding fighting Emacs on this one it was doable for me.
