That's Caoimhín Ó Donnaíle's mirror of the readme file for Whacking 
Latin, the UK version of Moby Latin. I don't see anything about 
re-engineering it, but maybe I missed something.

I would be glad to see that too, but where do you see that on the 
referenced page? All I see is John's original text about working around 
the MSKLC limitation.

If you want to work directly with KbdUTool to get serial dead keys, 
bypassing MSKLC, here is Kaplan's post from 2011 on how to do this. Be 
sure to read all the warnings twice:
