i tried that but now i can't type hindi at all.  i'm running XFree86 4.1.0.

Isn't XKB the future?  Does the XKB stuff work or is it horribly broken?

Yah, i tried this and i tried:

  keycode 0x71 = Mode_switch Multi_key

The other thing i noticed is that something deep inside KDE hangs for
about 20 seconds after the initial xmodmap.  After 20 seconds, KDE
starts working again but the hang is somewhat disturbing.
