Bug#407189: libxkbfile1: does not change key autorepeat state

Package: libxkbfile1
Version: 1:1.0.3-2
Severity: normal

When doing something like
  xkbcomp $DISPLAY /tmp/xkb
  <edit /tmp/xkb to change key autorepeat state>
  xkbcomp /tmp/xkb $DISPLAY
to change some keys' autorepeat state as viewed by the X server, the
autorepeat states are silently unchanged.

I believe that this is because the code which would be responsible for 
changing the state is commented out:
  #ifdef NOTYET
in XkbWriteToServer in srvmisc.c.

My IBM X40 Thinkpad has two keys which I would like to turn into Hyper 
and Super modifiers; however, their default state is to autorepeat, and 
I can't turn this off using xkbcomp.  (Using xset -r <keycode> works, 
however, as does generating an XkbSetControls request manually).

I'd be happy to provide more information or provide sample files if that 
would help.
