Note that while I agree with Yuri (it's generally better to use an
OS-wide keyboard setting that gives you the same key-strokes in all
applications), in the case of apl-mode, you probably want to use
a different keyboard setting.  So for apl-mode, it makes a lot of sense
to use an Emacs input method rather than an X11 input method.
