I have already Alt on the Apple left key. But I like to also
map it to the Apple right key since I use it quite a lot.

Before the addition to the "us" mapping I only had to define
<RWIN> as Alt_R. For now i have not yet found the magic incantation
to override this in my "es" keymap: the key becomes completely 
dead (NoSymbol, does not act as modifier) for whatever reason.
