I didn't rebuild anything ...

One thing I have in my hacked keymap is defining Alt as Mode_switch to
get the special combos using Alt, like Alt-shift-L for | or Alt-N for ~
(dead key) etc...

I think it should be possible to tell xkb to just do those combos with
Alt- without actually defining Alt as Mode_switch  or whatever else...

Looking at the way the Darwin driver works, it just fills the X keymap
tables internally with proper translations based on the sets of
modifiers, whatever those modifiers are.

It's just a matter of understanding XKB syntax, which is beyond my
abilities :)
