Actually, I *do* remember why I initially proposed that
de-latin1-nodeadkeys has:

keycode  13 = apostrophe       grave

And not:

keycode  13 = acute       grave

....this is because the X keymap "de" with "nodeadkeys" as variant
actually outputs an apostrophe *and not an acute*.

The "de" keymap in its "basic" variant *does* output an acute, on the
other hand.

That sounds fairly illogical to me...but this is indeed how it is. So,
if I take the stance of keeping consistency between X keymaps and
console-data keymaps, I should keep "apostrophe" for the nondeadkeys
variant....even if this is weird.

So, after thinking, my easoning is that if the nodeadkeys variant
should output an acute and not an apostrophe....then X keymaps should
first be changed.
