And those would be what buttons again?
Those would be whatever the maintainer of your xkb layout wants them to
be. Adding this stuff to an xkb layout is not rocket science and has
been possible for a long time.
So one of they keys on my keyboard should do something other than what I expect?

Bzzt. On an average keyboard, about 50% of the alt-ed space is not
marked and let to the implementators discretion. Without going into
Canadian six-level key complexity, four-level xkb layouts are the norm
and I dare you to find a keyboard where all four levels are marked.

So you're infringing on shortcut space instead? Well... as long as you aren't using letters I suppose that isn't horrible (or else, using alt+shift), but doesn't solve how to tell people such key combinations exist in the first place.

(Sigh. I need to file a bug against TB not defaulting to utf8.)
