    in practice, this is not even needed on a AZERTY keyboard: there's already a standard dead key for the circumflex
    (which can be typed without pressing any other key), and the ">" is located on the shifted state of the 102th key
    (whose unshifted state is used for "<").

    For me it would seem more logical to locate a caron on the "<" key, and no neeed to add another mapping for the
    circumflex.
