I have now written some code that uses the above way in order to modify the 
actions. However, the code did not have any effect at all (regardless 
whether I update the mapping with XkbSetMap or with XkbChangeMap). I am 
quite frustrated that I have invested a lot of time without getting such a 
simple task to work.

Did anyone else already implement the "initial jump"-requirement (so that I 
can take a look at it)? When searching through the internet I did not find 
any kind of example implementation. Currently I suspect that the X.Org 
version (6.8.2) of my Linux distribution (SuSE Linux 9.3) does not support 
this feature...
