      Description

      The Japanese keyboard layout definition used by Guacamole's RDP support currently contains the following:

      map -shift      0x02..0x0D 0x7D ~ "1234567890-^\"
      map -shift      0x10..0x1B      ~ "qwertyuiop@["
      map -shift      0x1E..0x28 0x2B ~ "asdfghjkl;:]"
      map -shift      0x2C..0x35 0x73 ~ "zxcvbnm,./\"
      
      map +shift      0x02..0x0A 0x0C 0x0D 0x7D ~ "!"#$%&'()=~|"
      map +shift      0x10..0x1B      ~ "QWERTYUIOP`{"
      map +shift      0x1E..0x28 0x2B ~ "ASDFGHJKL+*}"
      map +shift      0x2C..0x35 0x73 ~ "ZXCVBNM<>?_"
      
      map -shift      0x29            ~ 0xFF28
      map -shift      0x29            ~ 0xFF2A
      map +shift      0x29            ~ 0xFF29
      

      This is inherently incorrect, as the Japanese keyboard can type far more characters than those given here. Even if the missing characters are correctly mapped, several of these characters depend on additional, Japanese-specific modifier/lock keys which the keymap format does not currently define.
