Keyboard remapping-V0.4.0

I'm trying to remap the keyboard mappings on a SUN. 
I use the command  xmodmap  ~/keyboard/right-keyboard.txt
then in the file: right-keyboard.txt I have the following lines
! Add control key to meta_R button
keysym Meta_R = Control_R
add Control = Control_R

This remaps the right meta key to a control key.
If I type meta-A or meta-E, it appears that the aterm is not passing the
appropiate keystrokes to the X -server. 

I tried the same with rxvt v2.6.3 and it works there.
I noticed that this version of rxvt has a  [-mod modifier]
 -mod modifier                     alt | meta | hyper | super | mod1 |...|mod5

where as the current version of aterm does not. 

Could this feature be added in a future release or patch to aterm ?

Here is the current output from my mapping:
xmodmap:  up to 3 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):
shift       Shift_L (0x6a),  Shift_R (0x75)
lock        Caps_Lock (0x7e)
control     Control_L (0x53),  Control_R (0x81)
mod1        Meta_L (0x7f),  Control_R (0x81)
mod2        Mode_switch (0x14)
mod3        Num_Lock (0x69)
mod4        Alt_L (0x1a)
mod5        F13 (0x20),  F18 (0x50),  F20 (0x68)

I can try to patch an aterm, but i do not have a starting point yet.

Thanks for any info.
