point. Spanish users don't like the behaviour change for AltGr+4, no

I sincerely hope that xkb maintainers will *never* make the mistake
that has been done with console keymaps where dozens of various funky
keymaps are floating all around, adding a lot to confusion.

Sorry, I was talking more about the "layout variant", we can already choose between "basic", "sundeadkeys", "nodeadkeys" etc. So there could be two variants for the two different situations described in this bug report. Personally I would rather use the "nodeadkeys" if it wasn't for the fact that the ´ and ¨ are needed a lot in spanish. But I hate it that the ^ , ` and ~ are dead as well.

On the other hand if somebody can tell me how to add/make one of those variants myself I'll just make my personalized variant ;)
