I asked about this change on hcol group back in april but no one

I would just like that shift+<TLDE> remains mapped to tilde so I could get
it with one hand.

According to symbols/hr this is not compose, but deadkeys functionality.
See symbols/cs lines 153-165 (AE01-AE12). Columns 3 (altgr/ralt) and 4
(altgr/ralt+shift) should be swaped.

Denis, please redefine the whole row then (AE01 - AE12), not just 1,3,5 and 7.
