If that is added, then proto/x11proto/XF86keysym.h also needs to #define
that symbol.


Some time back the suggestion was made that we (Xorg) shouldn't be
adding to the XF86 symbols, but rather should be adding symbols in
our own range.  (It may have been long enough ago to predate this
list; one might also need to check the xorg@ archives if one were
to try to find it.)

It would be the first non-vendor keysym of that sort, though. So
where to place it is a good question, if a non-vendor keysym is
the chosen route.

I Ack the concept, but I'm not certain that is the correct place.
