    2 The X server uses this directory to store the compiled version of the
    3 current keymap and/or any scratch keymaps used by clients.  The X server
    4 or some other tool might destroy or replace the files in this directory,
    5 so it is not a safe place to store compiled keymaps for long periods of
    6 time.  The default keymap for any server is usually stored in:
    7      X<num>-default.xkm
    8 where <num> is the display number of the server in question, which makes
    9 it possible for several servers *on the same host* to share the same 
   10 directory.

   12 Unless the X server is modified, sharing this directory between servers on
   13 different hosts could cause problems.
