I've just checked into completely revised
new versions of


and minor associated updates to


This is to 

  - officially add the Unicode keysym range to the protocol spec, such that
    a Unicode character C with 0x100 <= C <= 0x10ffff can be represented by
    the keysym value C + 0x01000000,

  - officially add Unicode mappings for the legacy keysyms to the spec,

  - move some of the new keysyms that XFree86 had added, and which
    were not in the protocol spec, into this Unicode keysym range,

  - make the keysym-number  <-> keysym-name-string conversion
    routines able to handle full 29-bit keysyms

Please have a look, and if you find that something related to keysym
processing broke with this change, please let me know.
