Okay I must not understand what you are doing. An X client can easily 
distinguish between KeymapNotify and KeyPress events!

Huh? What I want is how X and Windows and OS/X work right now!

I suspect I have misunderstood what you are trying to do since this is 
making no sense to me. I thought this patch was to remove the fact that 
the key is held down in the xkb info being sent when the client gets 
keyboard focus. All I can guess is that you are doing something else but 
I am not clear what, since it is already true that the client does not 
get key press events.
