How windows handles them is "you run a second app that hooks keys".  Can I
run one app under Wine that intercepts and modifies key codes for another?

I guess, I'm not sure what's "obvious" about this.  I'd agree that it's obvious
that we don't want the user to have no option at all but to have this very
different behavior... However, it might make a wonderful *option* to have it,
given that the usual windows behavior for keyboards like this is "make the user
run a special application to hook key events".
