Sure, but that's exactly how Alt-Gr is handled on any other keyboard I know. It's a special key that replaced the right Alt key. So where exactly is the problem of the French keymap? Why can't it just map the Alt-Gr and the right Win key to the same key as for example the German or US-International keyboards do?Currently, AltGr and left win key have the same code, but right win key is the same as Alt. I don't know why it was made this way, and I don't see why we shouldn't add an extra modifier as altgr and win definitely aren't the same thing ? :)
As I understand it, there is a distinction in key codes between left and right Alt and left and right Win key. So if Alt-Gr physically replaces right Alt on a French keyboard, it would appear the keymap needs fixing, but it can be done without introducing another code, no?
