Please forgive me, for I've been having a brain freeze: I was sure that
xmodmap and friends are obsoleted and don't work any more.  I don't know
what gave me that impression, because xmodmap *does* indeed work.

So, problem solved.

Here's a recipe for reference:

xmodmap -e 'keysym XF86Back = Prior'
xmodmap -e 'keysym XF86Forward = Next'

Many thanks everyone,
