/etc/X11/Xmodmap re-revisited

[debian-x: I'm following up a thread on -powerpc]

Actually, I've decided to do the sensible (?) thing and identify the
keycodes by keyboard model rather than the machine architecture.  One way
or another you can probably manage to plug a PC keyboard into just about
anything, so it doesn't make much sense to refer to it as an "i386"

Comments?  Suggestions?
