ii  xkb-data       0.8-12exp2     X Keyboard Extension (XKB)
configuration dat
Powerbook 5,6.

If I use the following xorg configuration:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "kbd"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xorg"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "macintosh"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "fr"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "lv3:lwin_switch"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "apple:goodmap"

(with or without apple:goodmap or apple:badmap option), the <>/@# keys
are swapped. The option doesn't change anything.
