Hey its great to hear of this!
Ive been trying to put together something for the new gnu apl that has just 
been released.
The author gives an xmodmap that works for apl but makes emacs close to 
unusable -- Alt-x becomes an Apl char.  However all my attempts at wrapping my 
head round xmodmap have failed so far.
Can setxkbmap replace xmodmap?

So far I found xkeycaps which seems to be such a replacement. When I use it and 
try to save the map it segfaults :-(
