FS#161 - Key Bindings Don't Map Correctly in Dvorak
User who did this - Chris McClimans (hh)

The use case is I normally use a Kinesis Advantage with hardware 
remapping, so I can plug into anyone's computer who uses qwerty/us. But when I 
don't use the hardware mapped keyboard, I hit both shift keys and use the built 
in keyboard on the laptop. This is where Mod4 mappings seem broken and related 
to this old ticket.

The following X config is where I'm starting from:

[hh@mba ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf 
# Read and parsed by systemd-localed. It's probably wise not to edit this file
# manually too freely.
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "system-keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us,us"
        Option "XkbModel" "apple_laptop"
        Option "XkbVariant" ",dvorak"
        Option "XkbOptions" "caps:ctrl_modifier,grp:shifts_toggle"

[hh@mba ~]$ localectl 
   System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8
       VC Keymap: us
      X11 Layout: us,us
       X11 Model: apple_laptop
     X11 Variant: ,dvorak
     X11 Options: caps:ctrl_modifier,grp:shifts_toggle

When in the second mode, the (us keymap with dvorak variant) the MOD4 keys that 
are consumed by awesome are for the non dvorak variant (normal qwerty).
