The inversion of Alt and Cmd is actually mentioned in one if the
LinuxPPC2000Q4 Readme files.
And it is one of the first things I am always changing back in the
keymaps. There is really no sane reason for it, and you *have* to undo
it if you want a modifier key to get non-US characters on a US keyboard
or an Apple-like keyboard layout on a non-US keyboard.
