When XEmacs starts up, it gives me a mouthful. Why does it care?
The semantics of the modifier bits ModShift, ModLock, and ModControl
are predefined. It does not make sense to assign ModControl to any
keysym other than Control_L or Control_R, or to assign any modifier
bits to the "control" keysyms other than ModControl. You can't
turn a "control" key into a "meta" key (or vice versa) by simply
assigning the key a different modifier bit. You must also make that
key generate an appropriate keysym (Control_L, Meta_L, etc).
