Sic transit gloria keycodi

It was apparently decided that evdev should have different
keycodes than the usual. I for one welcome our new keycodes, the
old ones weren't any good anyway.

Now I need a way to query the X server for which keycodes mean
what, or at least whether it's the traditional set or the evdev

Is XGetKeyboardMapping() the way to do that ? Its removal is not
in the plans, is it ?

Thanks in advance.
