Changing XKB options without being root

Let's suppose root has enabled an XKB option...:


Section "InputDevice"
        Option      "XkbOptions" "numpad:microsoft"

... and I'm a mere (non-root) user who wants to turn that option off.
Or turn another option on.

What's the command to do that?  I would prefer to use a non-GUI app
e.g. not kxkb.
