	Really remove autorepeat.
	This strips all autorepeat from the keyboard driver.
	If you need autorepeat, use XKB.

So I've been trying to find the place in XKB to set the keyboard autorepeat
rate.  So far, I've been unsuccessful.

Google searches turn up lots of places that tell me to use xset, but
somehow this seems like a giant step backward.  And if the commit message
points me to XKB, there must be a way.

Can anyone give me any pointers?
